ok so i have a patriot ignite 480 installed with my os on it and some of my games so for performance, but I have been trying to find something in the forum for 2 days now that shows how to set it up properly. I will be running some of my main apps on the ssd. what is the best configuration for this though, like when i download crap and it goes to a temp folder or the downloads folder, and my browser history and all that crap that builds up. how do i set it up to make sure all the bulk of unneeded files that usually get deleted goes on my hdd so i am not stressing my ssd so much? is there a thread someone can point me to that i can see or can someone give me a walk through as to how they have theirs set up.

so far i have my OS set up on the ssd, its working fine my scheduled tasks are turned off so no defrag on my ssd. what other settings can i change to help both my ssd and my hdd perform better and efficiently. Im no tech here and would like some help with the proper setup so my ssd doesn't die so fast.

I have a g750jw
windows 8.1 installed

i know this has been a question that has been answered in many ways and forms on here, but i have yet to find something less than a year old, or specific to asus itself out there, there have been many suggestions but never a real step by step walk through that i can find about the asus ROG laptop series G750 or above.

Personally i would recommend you don't worry too much about it, current perating systems (windows 7 and newer) have a series of technologies designed to keep the drive healthy and the drives have a much bigger read/write cycles than first generations. I have the same configuration as you: os and some games on the ssd for performance and everything has been fine for months, the speed is still the same as new.

BUT if you want to try i would go with a ram disk if you plan to keep only temporary files that will be deleted every reboot.

Also have a look at how the trim command works, nice read.

thanks for the comment, even though they have had major improvements over the years I would still like to find something on here a little more recent as far as setting up my ssd and hdd so that they work well together. i have been assigning some of my most basic files and share folders like documents, pictures, etc to my D: (hdd), but i would just like to know if there is a better way to set them up in the hdd or a proper filing system to set them up. as well as some suggestions about other common folders or apps that do not need to be on my ssd.

You can Google it and a lot of information there and easy to step understandable mostly student help on the internet You should install Windows to the SSD like you normally would. After installing Windows and getting anything set up, you can do one of two things.Assignment writing*guide (http://www.buyassignment.net/assignment-writing-company)

Google? what is that? it amazes me that you would think I haven't been looking for something on the interweb, the problem with that is it is completely saturated with everyone's how too's, what i wanted was something new or recent from the asus community because i feel like i would get better suggestions from people that might be more familiar with my hardware. this wasn't helpful at all, and to top it off you give me an advert link to something that is completely useless, and out of context. and I already installed windows to the ssd like i mentioned in the original post.

i wish i could down vote on here

I think present pirate system windows 7 and newer have a sequence of technology intended to keep the force fit and the drive have a a great deal better read/write cycle than primary generation. homework assignment help
