I have a z68 MB and 500GB HDD and would like to upgrade by adding a SSD and larger HDD. I was looking at 120SSD and 1TB HDD and wondered what was the preferred setup?
I was going to keep it simple with a single partition on the SSD, a large primary partition on the HDD and a couple of small partitions (same size as SSD partition) for SSD image backups. Maybe an additional OS partition for the OS on the HDD just in case of a complete SSD failure.
OS (WIN7 Pro 64) on SSD
Programs (MS Office 2010) on SSD
Other programs (Browser, email, misc other) on SSD
User (my documents, my video, my pictures) on HDD
Backups of SSD on HDD
Restore Points on ???
Donwloads on HDD
Can anyone recommend other performance options and their justification with this type of hardware.
I wouldn't create additional partitions on the SSD nor the HDD. Just use folder for backups, makes you much more flexible, compared to partitions. You can put your restore points our the HDD.
The other points sounds good.
