    You can of course move other files to the SSD. Just make sure you leave appr. 20% of the SSD free - for wear leveling.

    As far as moving user files, docs, pics, etc, off the SSD to a regular drive, are the advantages really worth it? At this time I'm using less than half of the SSD, space not currently an issue. Should I bother with it or just leave well enough alone?
    I keep everything on my SSD I use my 2nd internal drive for storage, backups, and not much else. Unless you have a lot of games then you might want them on the 2nd drive. User files, pic's,doc's......all that I keep on my C-drive (SSD) Most of us do.

    That's enough space for a little while.

    Hi there

    Remember the Old Engineer's adage "If it ain't broke Don't Fix It". Still good advice.

    You can always move data later if you need to.

    I tend to move data etc for other reasons --having the OS / applications on its own SSD / partition makes the whole OS easier to restore / backup without having to worry about Multi-media files / other data etc.

    I second the motion. I do this also. Makes restoring a disk image very easy and much faster.

    I made a little performance comparison of HDD, SSHD and SSD.
