So my friend and I put together this new system (mostly him I watched to try and learn) My computer has two hard drives. The /C drive is a solid state drive of 120 gigs and my regular hard drive is /D. My problem is I hear solid states you don't want to put too much data on all the time such as (music, cookies from sites, porn) because you don't want to rewrite them and reformat them a lot. All i really want on it is windows 7 maybe my favorite video games and just really important stuff i need loaded fast. and since everything that saves to my desktop saves on /C my solid state its annoying, I always having to select /D (and sometimes i don't even get the option.)
... and yes, you're right in assuming you don't want to use an SSD for everyday data. These things are getting better as well, but still far inferior to hard times with regards to max read/write cycles.
well when i have stuff on my flash drive that i want to move to my desktop it goes on to /C. Basicly what i would like is for everything i click and drag to my desktop to be on /D. I want my cookies from websites to go on /D right now they go to /C
I found this elsewhere but haven't tried it out yet: If you move all your documents and data (not programs from the c:\program files) to the d: drive within explorer, windows will know what you're doing and actually link c:\documents and settings\*username\my documents to d:\whatever\my documents if you perform a move.
