I was just given two brand new Maxtor DiamondMax 16 250GB Drives (5400RPM.) I'm debating how (or even if) I should use them. Currently I have two 74GB Raptors with the first one containing OS and Apps and the second holding user profiles, data, pagefile, and temp files.
I'm considering splitting everything up further by putting OS on one Raptor, Apps on the other, using one Maxtor for user profiles and data, and the other Maxtor for temp and pagefile. I know that is an insane waste of space for the second Maxtor, but I can't think of anything else to use it for...and since it was free, I'm not too concerned. I don't have a significant amount of data (maybe 20GB tops.) Also, I have 2GB of RAM, so the speed of the drive isn't a major concern as far as the drive that the pagefile goes on.
Any thoughts? Will putting the OS and Apps on different drives (both Raptors) make a difference, or should I not bother and just leave everything the way it is? If so, I'll just sell the drives instead.
