Game recording. Writing on SSD, Saving on HDD?

Hello, I do some game recording and recently my Western Digital Caviar Black got bad sectors and is no longer with me :'(

Anyway, Now I have 2 drives left, a piece of crap 1tb external USB drive with a 50-60mbs write speed and my samsung 830 256gb SSD. I record with Dxtory. Recording straight onto my external is horrible as the write speed is not fast resulting in 10fps in the video when I'm playing at 120fps. If I record straight onto the SSD everything is fine as the write speed is good and can keep up with the recording although files can get very large and 10-20 min of footage can nearly fill my SSD as I already have a few things on there and its only 256gb.

Is it possible to write using my SSD, but it actually saves once they have been written on my HDD? And I don't mean manually cut and paste after recording I mean like live.

    It is not recommended u to write the file in SSD ~
    As u will decrease your SSD lifespan really fast ...
    And decrease your SSD performance in a really fast speed ..
    You better buy a HDD for it ..
    As for your request, I will doubt you can do so.
    But u can try to search in google ~

    Ok, Thanks for the info, I have done a little bit of recording on it before and thanks for telling me before I break it somemore. Also, On my SSD I have used 92.8gb and it says I only have 83.4gbs of space left. This adds up to 176gbs when my SSD is 256gbs. Is this possibly a result of that or is there something I can do to uncover the 80 odd gigs that are not usable.

    Sounds like your SSD is in need of some basic maintenance: http://www.thessdreview.com/ssd-guides/optimization-guides/the-ssd-optimization-guide-ultimate-windows-8-edition/?ModPagespeed=noscript
