IMO 120GB is not big enough to partition. Between the OS, apps, and may be a couple of games, you may be pretty much done with that capacity.bostonhokie wrote:Is there any reason to partition a SSD? Right now I have "Disk 0 Unallocated Space 111.8GB" can I just install windows to that or do I need a partition first?
I only redirected the 4 Library folders (Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos). On my brother's machine where he tends to throw stuff on Desktop, I redirected that too. Some people want to move the entire Profiles folder, but on a 120GB drive, space should not be that tight, and temp files from web browsers and other apps can remain on the SSD taking advantage of the speed.Ryu Connor wrote:Folder Redirection
bostonhokie wrote:Thanks for that, Flying Fox! I'm okay with the 100mb recovery and I really had no intent/desire on partitioning the SSD at all I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on something. I need to do some research into folder redirection and junctions and stuff like that, but at the moment I don't have a lot on the computer to begin with. I'm going to use the SSD just for basic stuff since its only 120GB. Any suggestions on everyday or useful programs that get a significant boost from residing on the SSD rather than the HDD?
