Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 218

post #2171 of 5384
Hey guys. I had a quick question. I recently went ahead and picked up a Crucial M4 64GB. I have windows installed and followed Seans optimization guide. What I am doing is using the SSD for OS. My 500GB Caviar black for programs and apps and my Samsung 1TB for media/storage.

After getting windows installed. I went ahead and created a simple volume on the Caviar Black and mounted that volume in an empty NTFS folder I created in Programs Files(x86). I am planning on using this folder for all my apps and games so that I take advantage of the SSD speeds but don't take up any of the space. The problem I am having though is when I tried to install Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 in that folder I got an error message telling me "Not able to install in a folder that has reparse points"

What does this mean?

the program creates a new folder in the default Program Files(x86). This installs the program to my SSD, not the HDD. And regardless of how many folders I create in that "mounted HDD" folder or whether I jsut select it and let kaspersky do its thing, I get the same message

EDIT: Here is a screenshot if what I get

I never understand why people won't use an SSD for programs too, only for OS..

Seriously, don't do any tricks here with creating folders etc. (and tbh I couldn't even figure what exactly did you do there..).

Now the perfect way to set up your system is to have and OS and all programs on an SSD (OS takes about 12GB and the rest for programs is plenty!). Games and storage files go to your hard drive(s) together with the User folder.

I have two machines run this way. Never had a single problem with installing anything and never ran out of space on either. Both blazingly fast.

Good luck!

I have one HDD on my system with 2 partition. I used first partition as OS drive and the other as data drive. I checked with AS SSD, the second partition got 17406427 K - BAD.

Here's the screenshot:

How to fix this?

Thank you.

SSD and HDD are two completely different things. If you don't have an SSD you shouldn't be using a benchmark tool for SSDs.

Get an SSD first, read Sean's guide and then we talk!

Install to the SSD and it should work fine.

I know that would be the best thing to do. I currently have moved all of my user folders( my music, pictures, documents, etc) to my 1TB Samsung.

How did you get your OS to 12GB? I installed the OS, deleted the hibernation file, installed only to first wave of updates from microsoft, istalled only my core drivers(AHCI/SATA, Northbridge, Audio, LAN, USB, GPU) and am sitting at "39.9GB Free of 59.6"....thats just under 20GB even before the drivers. After a clean install of windows and deleted hibernation file I was still sitting at about 15-17GB for the OS.
