What are the performance benefits like when moving bits and pieces of user profiles to the HDD instead of storing them on the SSD? For brevity, I'm using the following coordinate system:
- (Item, disk drive, expected performance gains)
- (Item, disk drive)
A couple of datapoints may be assumed:
- (Operating system, SSD, great performance gains)
- (Commonly used programs such as Microsoft Office Outlook, SSD, decent gains)
- (Startup programs, SSD, decent gains)
Where would (Full user profile, SSD) go? Would doing (Full user profile, HDD) slow things down a lot? What if I do (My documents folders for each user, SSD) and (rest of user profile, HDD)?
I've found articles online describing the process of creating a single user profile on the HDD. Is there a way to have Windows automatically create profiles on the HDD? What about automatically creating parts of the profile on the HDD (say, the My Documents folder)?
