Re: How to use new SSD and HDD drives most effectively

I've only just come to this thread again and noticed high up an expression of "hoping both drives don't fail".  Can we assume you have AT LEAST two complete, off line, copies of your original data?  Not of the programs or the indexing files or whatever but of the original stuff you created?

To answer your original point I'd simply put all your programs on the SSD drive and all your created stuff on the HDD and make sure you've numerous copies of the latter all kept disconnected except when updating them.  Your future tasks will be a lot easier if you set yourself a goal of never needing more disk space.  It will make you more sparing in what you shoot and more critical in what you keep and that will make you a much better photographer.
