Questions about SSD & HDD(Bridging the Two)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So,I'm getting ready to run to MC and grab 2 MC 64gb. SSD's,Going to Raid0 them.
What I want to do is install the OS on the SSD. I want to put Steam,BF2,BF2142, & BFBC2.Since I will have the space for those on the SSD.
The rest of my other software and games can go on 1 of my 320gb. HDD's that I am currently on in Raid0 now.
Then I have a 1tb. HDD for music,recorded tv, & videos.
My question is how do I bridge the SSD & the 320gb. HDD?,To where all I have to do is when installing game/software is to direct it to which drive I want it on.

You can go to the BIOS to set them.

Are you sure there is enough space for 64gb SSD? I know it's enough for operating system BUT with games installed I have a feeling it won't have enough storage.

If you want to boot up your SSD first because of operating system installed, you can go to BIOS set it to first HDD. (Depends on motherboard's manufacture)

The rest of the 2 hard drives set it to secondary and tertiary (3rd).

Install Steam on your HDD.... and then use Steam Mover (www.traynier.com/software/steammover) to move them to the SSD.

Plug in SSD.
Install OS.
Plug in HDD(s).
Install drivers.
Move My Documents to HDDs.
Install applications. You can install most on the SSD but direct Steam to the HDD.
Download and install Steam games.
Use Steam Mover to move the games to SSD.
Once again...
