Wndows 10 SSD Optimization

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway to optimize windows for ssd storage(as in change location of users, user data, program files, etc. to "D:/" while leaving core windows files in "C:/") while also still being able to receive windows updates?

Yes and no. Yes you can, but it requires you to set up symlinks (symbolic links). This also would defeat the purpose of an SSD. Currently the communication link is the bottleneck (the sata cable) on most ssd's. Using the motherboard's chipset to connect two Hard Drives together (C drive and D drive) is inefficient and causes issues.

 

Windows 10 requires 20Gb of space to install, you shouldn't use anything less than a 100GB ssd, but in order to feel the performance of an SSD you really need all software (drivers, OS, games) on the ssd and now with TB drives available no reason not to. Generally the D drive is used for files and software that you don't use often.
