    HDD Setup

    So I finally gave in and ordered a 74GB Raptor to accompany my 250GB Samsung, but here's my question:

    How should I set these up?

    Obviously the OS should go on the Raptor and my larger files should go on the Samsung, but what about games, applications and the Windows Swap File?

    Id put your documents and music etc. on the Raptor, and have the Windows Swap File and games/apps on the Samsung. But then I have a lot of music (about 65gbs or so), so I guess it might be a bit bare if you don't have a lot of documents.

    I have Windows/apps on my Raptor and data on my regular drive. Works for me and it's not like I need high speed access to Red Dwarf on a regular basis.
