    - you'll need to do that with a partition management boot disk - e.g. Minitools has one to download for free.

    Before I starting dual booting the insider test build on a separate SSD I found a 100 GB primary partition worked well for the windows insider builds and gives Windows 10 plenty file swapping room on new build installs and otherwise *if you manage the new volume and don't let it grow to much .

    dalchina kindly posted basically what I do above with my SSD . I just have small data files and some apps on it and a small 2.6 GB doc library with the big one on another storage drive and both backed up and no Photos or Media on the SSD except for a temporary trans-code or download now and then that goes out to a media or data storage drive if I don't transcode video on or to a metal HDD to mediate large writes to the SSD .

    On a 120GB SSD I manage it so it doesn't get full .

    I average ~ 35 -40 GB all total for the windows insider test builds and some apps and data and it gets anything else it needs off the other drives rather quickly anyway .

    The new Core i5 daily grinder/test mule PC can enumerate large file folders and draw icons quicker than my old AMD Phemon II x6 core PC which wasn't bad with that with both PC at 8 GB of ram but it cant keep up with the new Core i5 even if it still worked on the SSD I have in here now.

    It's about time I looked at this SSD and move something to another drive . I have a ~11 GB folder that doesn't need to be on this drive anymore it's data and finished work I was intending to migrate into a storage drive anyway .
