    2nd HDD

    I'd like to install a 2nd HDD of the same speed as the first and wonder if I can put both the pagefile and My Documents on the 2nd drive.

    If I can put only one, which would you recommend?

    I don't know of any reason why you can't put anything you like on a secondary drive, Scott, but that's not to say there's a lot of advantage to be attained. I used to keep my swap file on a second drive just to avoid backing it up (imaging), but after I realized that TrueImage doesn't backup the swap file, I quit separating it when I bought this new machine.

    Also, in my case, "99%" of what I "save" on my computer is NOT in the My Documents folder, for I have a folder of my own making in which I have many subfolders for data files that I create. There are forced exceptions of course, but they are few.

    Thanks...I guess I need to find out about the advantages/disadvantages to putting/keeping the pagefile with 'My Documents.'

    Well, I think I can tell you the answer to that question - there are none. The pagefile and My Documents have nothing to do with one another and are separate questions.
