2 SSD Boot Drives With Windows? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
If all that is going on the SSD is the OS, I don't see the need to have it constantly plugged in and updating in real time as opposed to having it in a drawer. I do see your point about just using a mechanical drive, though, as an SSD is an expensive drawer-space-taker-upper.

OP, throwing a clone in the drawer will work, if you are willing to spend the money to have an SSD in the drawer.

So would everyone suggest me either using a RAID 1 or just using an external for a back up? In all honesty, I wouldn't mind spending the money on a back up SSD instead of a mechanical hard drive. The whole reason why I was going to use 2 SSD's in the first place is so I wouldn't have a loss in performance if one fails, that way I can keep going, doing what I do.

Regardless of what other people might say, I'd go for an external backup drive and use SSD for something else. Using an SSD as backup drive just sounds weird to me. Anyway, I run my system exactly as I suggested above and am very happy with how it works out.

Small SSD for OS, programs and 1 or 2 games; big mechanical drive for my other games, User folder and any other stuff and finally the external drive for backup and some other random rarely needed stuff.
