ssd and hdd at the same time

Recommended Posts

Hi! I just bought an asus notebook with hdd, well performing and quite fast, but I'm thinking about passing to ssd.

The notebook has windows 8, with the hdd divided into OS and Data partitions.

Here is my question: do I have to sacrifice my hdd 750gb if I put the ssd? Can I keep both of them in the same notebook, maybe creating a partition OS on ssd and EXCESS DATA in 750GB hdd? In case it is possible, will my notebook be faster or it's nonesense doing it?

Some of the larger Asus models supports dual hdds, so you could do SSD+HDD. Look at the model number of your notebook and look for specifications online. Note: If you damage your notebook while disassemblly and installation of the second drive(unlikely), your warranty may be void.

An SSD is a great option for most people. You will notice faster boot ups and program loading. For gaming, faster map and texture loading which can help smooth out game play. Overall, think of it as reducing the bottleneck of the system. For professionals, it will help with loading large project files.

Also, they can be cheap. A 512GB ssd recently went on sale for $189.

If dual drives is not possible, you can also put the 750GB in a portable enclosure and use it as an usb external hdd or use cloud storage. Not ideal for some but does the job.
