I am looking to maybe upgrade to an SSD for my next Drive. I have read a bunch of stuff, mostly thanks to the good people here. I had a question though. I currently have about 80gigs of data on my drive. This is Win 7 and Apps only. IF I were to put a few more games on here... it could reach 100G... Would a 120 or 160G SSD be enough? I know it will fit but we would be looking at 60-80% capacity. Would this effect performance at all? On my current drive this only constitutes about 25% of my total capacity. Any insight would be helpful..
One major thing that will save space is to move the "My Documents" and other "Libraries" folder to another drive.
This is what we then call a data/media drive. Simply drag and drop them from the "Users" folder on the C drive, and Windows 7 will then point to the new location as default for "Libraries."
So keep the original drive, and use it for data/media/storage/backups.
Take a look at the size of these library folders, and see if moving them would free up alot of space. My Win7 drive only uses 22GB of my 80GB RAID 0 SSD array. But don't go this route, it's complicated to RAID SSDs.
