Hello. I hope this question isn't too dumb, but I have been thinking of getting an SSD for my OS and programs only, but since I have a lot of programs like for graphics and video editing, I want to make sure I get the right size. I've read that there should be a lot of space left over on the SSD otherwise it will run slow. I know I could buy a 500 GB and it will be more than enough but the price of the one I want is making me consider the 240 GB one.
If I right click on the Programs folder and the Programs (x86) folder, does that give me a good idea how much space my programs take up? If so, then perhaps they take up about 30 GB. Does that sound correct? Or am I way off?
I have Adobe Creative Suite with Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, also Adobe Premiere, Dreamweaver, Flash, Xara, etc.
I intend to keep all my files, videos, music, photos, etc., on the HD.
Any suggestions/ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
