  2. Confused about hard drives: HDD and SSD

    Browsing through the Microsoft Store for a new pc, I see various hard drives listed, such as:

    16GB eMMC

    32GB eMMC

    500GB 5400 RPM HDD

    2GB DDR3L 1600 MHz

    32GB SSD [?]

    64GB SSD

    I understand that solid state drives are good, though expensive. What I don't understand is what size of an SSD would be the equivalent of, say, a terabyte HD? It seems that 64GB is the largest SSD offered here. What size HDD would equal that capacity?

    And, BTW, what is an eMMC?

    Storage Utilization Suggestion, new PC with SSD & HDD

    I recently purchased a new Dell XPS 8930 with a 256gb SSD and 2tb HDD.

    What would be the best recommendation to utilize these effectively.

    I've yet to unbox this Desktop PC as I want to research all best solutions before I move data from old PC and/or re-install software.

    I assume the Windows 10 Pro will be installed on the SSD as the primary C: drive.

    I also assume the HDD will merely be treated as a secondary drive (e..g., not set as a default data drive).

    Should I set the HDD as a data drive (e.g., default folder for Documents, Pictures, Downloads etc.) ?

    If so, what is the best way to do this (e.g., via settings/storage menu or via folder properties move to new location) ?

    Will any of this cause issues with OneDrive syncing ?

    Should all new software installs be set up on the HDD even though new software entries will end up in the registry file on the SSD drive C ?

    FYI - I do NOT have any storage shortage issues... I currently only utilize just under 100gb on my old PC, so in reality I could run everything on SSD, but preventing writes to SSD will extend its life.

    Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
