Re: New Computer setup


I've also got a laptop and two other desktops that have SSD boot drives and 1TB or larger HDD's. The laptop only has 128GB for its boot drive, but it is working fine, as long as I save to the 1TB hard drive. Same with the desktops, though they tend to have plenty of space for the OS at 500GB.

The trick is to change some windows defaults to redirect downloads and the like to the hdd.

Man, you have some storage!

I also have a laptop with 128Gb SSD and 2Tb HDD. Since it's mainly used for Office stuff and browsing, standard Windows defaults haven't caused an issue with the  small boot drive. The laptop runs Office 365 and several "graphics-lite" programs; data goes to the HDD, of course.

It's quite a trend these days for consumer grade laptops to come with just a single SSD, and most seem happy with 256 or 512Gb. Quite likely that some don't know what's inside.
