Not sure how to set up different storage devices for my needs. HELP Tags: Storage Last response: September 24, 2013 1:33 PM in Storage Share Shrewsie_B September 24, 2013 7:58:08 AM Hi all, I'm a gamer, mainly, and currently have a 1Tb HDD that is filling up fast. Now I want to do multiple things but I'm not sure what the best set-up is going to be. 1. I want more storage for game installs, and other general program storage needs. -So I was thinking about 1 or 2 more HDDs at like 2Tbs apiece. -Also, is it alright to have different sized HDDs?? 2. I'd like to get into SSDs, but I only see the advantage of putting an OS on them. So, what else are they good for, and why invest in large SSDs? 3. I want to back-up all my memory. Is this best done with external drives that you just connect like once a week or so? Not sure what the best method for back-up is. Thanks ahead for any suggestions More about : set storage devices Reply to Shrewsie_B USAFRet a c 264 G Storage September 24, 2013 8:03:02 AM 1. Yes, that will work just fine. 2. SSD. Not just the OS, but applications work well being installed on the SSD. But unless you get a REALLY large one, games won't fit. But gameplay doesn't really benefit from being on the SSD, so it doesn't matter. Put the games on a large HDD. 3. An external drive for that is a good plan.
