View Full Version : Drive Setups for G75VW

04-20-2013, 05:04 PM
I am leaning toward a 256GB or 512GB SSD for my OS and programs and a 1TB HDD for storage. What setups are you guys currently running? Should I go with a 256 or 512 SSD?

Not sure what to go with yet on the HD type or SSD. Or what size I am going to go with in the SSD. Any options/feedback would be appreciated.

I am using a Sandisk Extreme SSD 120GB SATA 3 into the original HDD bay of the laptop, and I moved my 750GB hybrid HDD into the optical bay of the laptop with the help of a drive caddy.

My laptop came with a 256 BG SSD + 1 TB HDD out of the box

256 GB split into 2 here

C: 50 GB (for Windows and my programs)
D: (the rest of the space left on the SSD for Games)
E: 1 whole partition for the HDD (I keep my videos, music, docs, pics, and other files that don't need a fast spinning rate to perform)

if I were you, I would go with at least a 960 GB SSD these days to be future proof or if you can't afford it, at least a 256 512 GB SSD

Keep the C: partition always to the min. required, for example, after I installed all my apps including Adobe photoshop CS6 and Office 2010 and all the other apps, I still have 22 GB free on my C: partition.

Thanks to deleting all the downloaded windows updates temp files (around 700 MB) because after they are installed, Windows forgets to delete the installers from the temp folder (C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download)

I also minimize my page filr to 1024 MB Min / 1024 Max since I have 16 GB RAM (I used to disable it for 2 years also never ran into a problem)
I also disable hibernation so that saves me a LOT of space

Two Samsung 830 512gb SSD

Sometimes I have them in RAID-0 as 1 1TB partition, and other times I have them separate for two 512 GB, one with Windows 7, and one with Linux Mint 14

i think you should use 512 SSD.
