SSD/Windows usage questions
06/06/12 03:52 AM


Thinking about buying a small SSD, I have a couple of questions and ideas roaming mein globen.

My Windows folder is 18,3GB - it's a fully updated, 5 months old installation of 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate SP1. I haven't kept track of how much or how fast it grows. How big is yours? (ooo'er!)

I just want the fast boot really because I can't afford to be interested in having Word, Mail or games load faster as well.

Is it easy to set up Windows so that the whole "Users" folder hierarchy and the two Program Files folders are on a second (conventional) drive, and does it actually work, am I going to have constant problems with apps or games not respecting the new location as the default? And how/where do I do this?

I'm considering a 128 or even 64GB SSD but of course a drive that small would only work if I could have just the Windows folder on it. Swap and hibernate files too of course. Maybe an occasional game or whatever, just for the hell of it.

And are there any downsides to doing this?
