What should be on a 40gb system drive.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
On a 40gb SSD, Wich will be used as a boot/system drive, What exactly should go on it?

So i will install windows on the drive (obviously)
But ontop of that, Should i put programs that i have starting at start-up on it? - or would it be better to have those on a separate drive?


Also, as its only a 40gb drive, all of my documents/videos/music will go on a mechanical drive.
How would i do this ( Like Map the 'users' folder on my ssd to a 'users' folder on a mechanical drive

thanks

Any of the user folders you want to move you can just right click>properties>location>move and point to the new location. You might want to move your TEMP and TMP also, especially if your DL'ing ect. - thery're in Control Panel>System>Advanced System Properties>Environment Varibles - just edit them to a folder in a new location.

I'd put all startups on the SSD and anything you use regularly - you'll have at least 20gigs to play with.

I have a Intel X25-V 40gb besides w7x64 i have all my apps on it things that i use in a daily basis and i have used up to 20gb and do not see the need for more... Its fast enough for me
For downloads i have my mechanical drive set up so they all go in there. Startup programs all in the SSD for faster load of windows
