Good day computer geeks! My brother told me that he's planning to "upgrade" our current drive (HDD) to SSD before I give my go signal I just wanted to know first the advantages/disadvantages between SSD and HDD.

Hi stratnetwork,

 

Welcome to BC! :welcome:

 

We're a nice bunch, and if you do decide to move over to SSD there's loads of great people here who can help you with the migration and any technical difficulties you may have.

 

That said, let me Google your question for you

 

TsVk!

For speed,  Eg Launching programs or fast boots. SSD.

 

For storage HDD

 

How big is the SSD? What Operating system are you using? For Windows a 256 GB SSD is the minimum IMHO 128 is just too small.

 

 

As a result of its benchmarks, Anandtech recommends that you “plan on using only about 75% of its capacity if you want a good balance between performance consistency and capacity.” In other words, set aside 25% of your drive and don’t write to it. Only use up to 75% of your drive’s free space and you should maintain ideal performance. You’ll see write performance start to slow down as you go above that mark.

Hi TsVk, thanks for the warm welcome! I'm glad i joined this community, there are lots of things I want to cope up with the new trends.

I did searched Google before, however, I don't find the articles "user friendly" so I wanted to ask pro folks that could explain in a simple manner. :)

6 Things You Shouldn’t Do With Solid-State Drives

Hi NickAu1, thanks for an easy explanation! Applying that, is it okay if we used 256GB SSD for booting and a separate 1-2TB HDD for files/games/etc. ?
