What drive to place add on software in?

Recommended Posts

I hope this is not considered a hardware question, if so mod's feel free to move the post...I have two hard drives in my system One a WD Caviar that has my OS on it and a second WD Velociraptor that I will use for FSX. I am doing a complete re-install of FSX as per Nick N's set up guide. My question is Once I get to the point of adding add on software do I want to put it all on the same drive as FSX or not? Or should some of the stand alone software like V-Route ASX etc go on the Caviar drive? I am sort of assuming that I should pack anything that has to do with FSX onto the Velociraptor and be done?Any advice would be great.Thanks,Robert

As long as you've got room... that is the way I do it.C: Caviar drive for the OS, with a second D: partition for all my non-FS stuff and a dedicated Raptor for FSX and FSX addons.Nice and tidy and runs great.
