So I have inherited a few storage options for use in my pc...
and I could use a little help in understanding how to optimize said options.
I have the following:
120 GB Samsung EVO SSD,
1 TB WD Caviar Blue
2 TB WD Passport Ultra (external)
WD Black2 Dual Drive (120GB SSD + 1TB HDD)
I want to keep my operating system on a fast SSD.
And it is a pc for gaming, and as i understand it only certain load-intensive games benefit from being installed on a SSD as opposed to a HDD.
And I intend to be recording/saving a lot of video/audio data as well.
I also do alot of torrenting, upload and download.
My initial idea was to keep the EVO as my OS drive.. use the 2TB external as a place to store my recordings and footage for editting... and use the 1TB for personal storage of everything else.
But now i just recieved the Black 2 Dual Drive and don't know what to do with it. I'm no expert, and only know what i do from google research. I know of
raiding together SSDs, but i've read in a few sources that the Dual Drive's SSD can't be raided.
Would anyone be willing and able to best suggest a setup for me?
Where and how do i use each drive?
Would recording with a capture card to an external (USB 3.0) be problematic?
Would torrenting constantly on one of the drives be labor intensive to my computer?
Am I asking the right questions?
Please and thank you!
