Would putting the OP on a small HDD help performance?
I just recently got an old 40GB HDD (7200rpm) that needs an IDE cable to use. My main HDD is a 500GB 7200rpm drive (SATA). Would i see a performance increase if i installed my operating system onto the 40GB, and used my 500GB for everything else?
More aboutwould putting small performance
no, that would give u worse performance because the older drive just performance worse.
