What to do with my old ssd

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just replaced my ssd with a new 120gb plextor so i have an old 30gb ssd. My secondary drive is 2 wd 1tb drives in raid 1. I wanted to use my old ssd as a cache drive for the storage drives but i am not sure how to do it on an amd system. I was wondering if there are any other uses for the 30gb ssd. Any help will be greatly appreciated. biggrin.gif

You might find this thread relevant to your question:

Basically, setting it up as a cache drive is barely gonna bring you any performance gains. You'll be better of just using it as a standard drive and just putting a bunch of applications you use regularly on it smile.gif

Hope this helps!
