What are the possibilities with an SSD hard drive?
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have an Intel SSD drive which I have cloned my hard drive to and now swapped it. It works fine, and I have read how I can improve it's performance. My problem is the size limitation, and the problem with how long it will last if I keep reading and writing to it. So it looks like the solution is to use the drive as a boot drive and use another drive for programs, and documents to some degree, but I have no idea how to do that. I looked around a litle for clues, but most articles were about making it run faster etc, or just installing windows on it instead of cloning. Is there any way I can clone first then configure it to use another drive for my documents, and temp folders etc? How configurable is this? I'm thinking I could edit the registry and change the default locations of files, then copy them over. I suppose I could try this, and if it crashes, just start over, but I hate the idea of re-writing everything over and over again. Is this how it's done? Is there any utilities that help with this process? Do I really need to just install windows 7 clean if all I want to do is change the location of some of the folders?
