How much room should I leave on my SSD?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a 120gb Evo Drive, and I'm not sure how much space I should leave free. I have around 20% free, and I'm thinking about adding Bf4, which will bring it to around 2%. I could delete my hibernation file, but I'm not sure if there would be enough space for the SSD to do deletion.

I think 20% is a very safe number. Definitely 10% will begin to present a worry

Well in that case I might have to decide if I want to keep my modded Skyrim or downloading Bf4 onto my SSD.

i'd leave like 5-10% minimum.

 

So if you add BF4 disable hibernation.
