Im looking to setup a small SSD with windows and a few games on it and use my old HDD for storage. I know how to set this up, but what I need to know is how to stop the main drive being filled with crap. I don't want anything but windows components and game files on it. How do I setup so that all temp files amd random internet crap is put straight to the storage disk?
Don't forget to:
1) disable hibernation. save SSD space equal to ram size.
2) Set min/max size of page file to the same value (can use 1024 mb if you have 4 gigs ram). This saves about 3->4 gigs Space as Window use by default about 1.5 x Ram). This can also be moved to the HDD - slight performance hit, dependent on how aften the Page file is accessed.
3) Important for Small SSDs. Either disable restore points or limit the amount of diskspace they can take.
