How many hard drives?

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I'm changing all of my hard drives to give me a more organised and hopefully smoother system and i'm looking for advice on which to use on what software.

I have a 240GB SSD, 1TB SSHD and 2x 500GB HDD. 

My plan was to use the SSD for windows, SSHD for Steam and FSX:SE and one of the others for music, photos and crap. Question is do I dump all of the add-ons on the SSHD along with steam and FSX:SE or should it go on the remaining drive? Some of my add-ons are downloaded from steam such as 4x VFR Scenery England. I don't know if that means it all has to stick together.

 

All advice appreciated.

 

Cheers

 

Roy

I agree with your plan. Windows and any programs such as Office etc on the SSD. You can put everything FSX related onto the SSHD. Keep the two 500 GB drives for your other stuff such as your documents, music and photos. Don't plug both 500GB HDD discs in unless you need both.

Thanks Greg, smart thinking. There's no need for me to waste valuable resources, generate extra heat and cause any additional noise.

 

I might use one as an external backup drive.
