SSD - max capacity? Tags: SSD Office Storage Last response: October 4, 2011 8:24 AM in Storage Share ted-celle October 2, 2011 3:43:35 PM Just built a new pc and using a 128gb SSD drive. With Win 7, MS Office and all my pictures/music/files, I'm using about 65GB with about 55GB left -- so just over half full. I've read before that SSD drives should always have ~25% free space for maximum performance. Am I ok if I fill the drive to about 80GB, or should I not worry about that?
