My question is whether it's possible to rebuild a laptop with a 32GB SSD and 500GB HDD with Windows 8.1 making use of the 32GB SSD in some way to improve performance.
For example: I've read about Windows Image File Boot as an option but will this provide actual benefit, or will I still run out of disk space on the OS "drive"?
Edit: I've reconfigured the page file settings to use much less space on the SSD (OS drive) and disable the hiberfil.sys completely (even though this article implies I shouldn't).
If the answer is "No, it's too small, just install the OS to the 500GB drive" I'll accept this answer.
Background: The laptop was bought new with Windows 8.1 pre-installed but I wiped all of the drives and instead installed Linux Mint onto the SSD. Now I've switched back to Windows 8.1; installing the OS to the SSD. I'm finding that I'm already running out of room on the 32GB OS disk though.
