so i am trying to turn my old desktop into a server, but it is still a very nice system so i dont want to harm it by leaving it on 24/7. i know the issue is that the hard drive will be constantly spinning and wearing it down fairly quickly, but could i put an ssd in the system, and leave it on full time with no issues. like i said it is still a very nice system, and i dont want to hurt it.

 

UPDATE: i guess im not turning it into a server i am just using it as a file system that i can access wirelessly. it will be running windows 7, but it wont have a monitor or keyboard or anything plugged in

That's what I did with an older i3 unit, mounted four 500GB drives and left all the files on shared within the LAN, wired to the router.

does that put any extra wear on the system though??
