    Ah I just checked, apparently TRIM is on by default if you have the latest windows anyways, has its own schedule and everything which is nice, so no need to worry about that.

    @sygnus21 yeah your right, i can be a bit of a worry wart, I just like to know whats going on and feel in control is all. Knowledge is power right?

    @steve108 Thank you for the continued support. I will just leave it for now, if I come into any actual issues then its worth worrying then.

    You where right about getting 256gb, I realised that would be the perfect size, and it was only like 10 dollars more or something aha, at least I know for when I build next time. Only because I realised some programs like Discord and Kaspersky default to C drive, but they don't take up much so should be fine.

    lmaooo! Well I just got done with Kaspersky, its actually a lot smaller then I thought. I also installed Steam directly on the harddrive and it defaults to downloading/installing all the games on the harddrive anyways so thats great. All thats left is Streamlabs and Photoshop/Premere Pro.

    I've seen all the folders and files that come with adobe products so I'm a tad bit worried its going to spread its files like wildfire.

    Vellaura,
    Glad you have a good sense of humor

    Do you pay for Kaspersky? Windows Defender does quite well these days - I use it exclusively as main protection on multiple PCs - and it's free.

    Nah I use the trial then switch to the free version, but I used to pay, then I realised free version is enough + if I don't go out of my way to download malware aha. I've been using it for years and never had any issues with it, it definetely protected me a lot as well and doesn't hog resources so for me its the best.

    @Vellaura,
    Do you have any software installed that monitors your drives' health continuously?

    Stories like your old HDD dying (you were caught off-guard) and similar others I read on the internet where the same happens with both SSDs and HDDs is why I've become proactive and run Crystal Disk Info in my tray .

    Since you experienced drive failure, I would think you would want to do them same . I hope you bought good quality drives - when it comes to drives, I don't go the cheapest route.

    I appreciate the concern!

    Honestly I did have software like that but I noticed I was just increasingly becoming insane constantly monitoring it, like I miss the good old days where I would turn on my pc and just switch off my brain.

    I've been troubleshooting for the longest time and I believe THIS TIME everything should be okay. It's a new harddrive so I don't expect anything to happen for the longest time, my old harddrive was like 10 years old lmao, so I'm not worrying too much on a new one.

    Basically just going with the ignorance is bliss motto until i experience anything. My old drives where caviar black (maybe why they lasted so long?). This time around I went with seagate. I think WD and Seagate are the top 2 right? Is there anyway I can check the models without having to install any software? I should have taken a screenshot before i installed them aha.
