for my new desktop computer i want to buy a (smaller) SSD drive and put Windows 7 64bit on the SSD and only the most used stuff. And a second (bigger) normal HDD on which everything else goes. What is a good strategy to do so?
Is it possible to:
- move the program folder to the HDD (both x86 and 64bit one)? This should be possible with normal windows features.
- move the users folder to the HDD - this should as well be possible directly with a windows setting
- move some stuff from the windows folder itself there (i am thinking of the Installer directory - maybe more?). For this i hope that Symlink can be used. Will it work if files aer in use? Installer folder i would hope that i can move with no files in use? What about other files - possible to do from some command line or such?
And in case i use one program very often can i use symlink easyly and seamlessly to move that program or some data files onto the SSD and gain all the speed bonus?
Are there any known limitations of symlinks using Hardlinks or is it safe to use that?
Thanks in advance!
