Once you have windows installed you may for better ssd performance mount a virtual drive on the ssd and install big file games and things in it, big video files etc.
Maybe split the HDD size in half or whatever size you want. In windows go to program files x86 and make a folder call it what you like, games or stuff or something. go to disk management in admin tools .computer management right click the HDD and choose shrink space so say you shrink it by half, in options after its shrunk, click to mount in empty ntfs folder and browse to the folder you made in windows x86.
Once thats all done you will have a virtual folder on the ssd drive and anything you install into that will not be on your ssd only mirroerd there but you will get the same speed as if it was.
You can then make folders in that virtual folder and put all sorts into it, not hogging or using any space on ssd
NOTE: when you click to mount in empty ntfs folder name it same as you have the folder in program files x86 and do not assign a drive letter to it, I forgot that bit
so if youve done it right you end up with something looking like the STUFF shortcut in my x86 folder
Couple questions about your instructions,
"In windows go to program files x86 and make a folder call it what you like, games or stuff or something. go to disk management in admin tools .computer management right click the HDD"
Did you means rightclick the SSD? Or am I shrinking the HDD in size, I'm alittle confused.
Also if creating a virtual drive doesn't take up any space on the SSD but at the same time maintains the speeds of the SSD, why are people worried about the size of their SSD then? It seems that if you have a large secondary HDD and you run a virtual drive, the size of the SSD doesn't really matter. Or maybe im misreading what you typed. Alittle confused lol.
