Windows 7: New HDD, transfer windows, improve performance

04 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 x64
New HDD, transfer windows, improve performance

I decided to get a SAMSUNG HD103SJ as it has twice the benchmark score compared to my current drive.

I will copy my current drive onto this to get the most benefit. I imagine I would get most benefit from re-installing win 7 from scratch again but I don't think I want the hassle.

This will leave two drives that according to benchmark are half as good and I am left wondering how I can use these to their best.

I play games, have lots of music, and ofc have AV. I heard that installing different items on your drives can speed up your performance. I have tried googling but I cannot find guides for this. Please suggest what would work best on my system.

Thank you in advance.

I would set the smaller drive to be your OS drive and the larger drive to be your application drive.
