setting up an ssd drive

Postby towy71 » Fri Jan 01, 2016 11:21 am

I have got a Samsung 250gb ssd for Christmas thinking that I would stick it in my desktop and play but, have spent a couple of days reading about people burning their new ssd out, I am looking for an elegant and easy solution before ruining a good bit of kit.

Please help

I shoved a 60GB SSD in to my PC which ran Debian 7. Nothing bad happened.

However, I look at SSD's the same way I look at Flash Drives. They can burn out, and it's for that reason I still put my trust in spinning rust.

My SSD's are okay. One advice. As you have 256GB SSD only. Install windows and all essential programs in SSD. And keep other media like audio, video, pics in HDD.

I installed 3 128GB SSDs in desktops last year and they are just fine !!!
(I back up everything several times over, so if they do burn out, I'll start again)

SSDs are so much faster - I wouldn't look back. :mrgreen:
