So the SSD that I'm going to buy is ADATA Premiere Pro SP900 128GB ssd. Is on sale for $82!
Mainly I'll be using this as my boot drive and will be installing some programs.
Questions: So I wanted to make 2 partitions 1 for purely OS and nothing else, 2nd partitions would be programs like Office, photoshop, Corel draw, pinnacle, Sony Vegas, editing software etc...
One thing to note is that a 128gb has roughly 119gb of usable space. So I already lost 9gb right at the start.
I mainly wanted to make 2 partitions because I like to keep OS separate from other programs. Plus it make backup easier to manage incase if I decided to reinstall the OS. I'll also be using 3tb hdd as my secondary storage.
So my question is how much space do I need to give for the 1st partition with my OS in it? Is it worth doing partitioning considering is only 119gb to work with? Does it make any difference at all? Should I just buy higher ssd like 240gb? But i already got 3tb hdd.
