    SSD partitioning

    Hi Ananth

    Yes, you can and probably should create a separate data partition on your SSD, the advantage of doing this is if Windows ever corrupts, your data will be safe on the other partition, should you need to re-install Windows 10

    The ideal partition size depends on the number of applications you need installed on your system

    I would suggest a 100GB partition for Windows and you applications and the rest of that drive as a data partition, Windows itself will use up to 32GB of that partition . . .

    Yes, you should have a page file, regardless of the amount of RAM you have installed.

    You will see lots of advice about Page file size and whether you need that, it is honestly best to let Windows 10 manage that automatically. If you do wish to set that manually, then approx 1.5 times the size of your RAM is the only setting your should use

    If you are worried about your SSD filling up because of the page file size, then honestly you should store some of your larger files on an external drive, 500GB should be plenty of internal storage on any laptop . . .

    Partition Sizes?

    My new system has 2 150 g Raptors in Raid0. I normally keep the O/S on one partition, installed applications on another, and my paging file on another partition. With a volume size of 300 gigs, what would you suggest as far as partition sizes are concerned?

    Thank-You. *Smile Recommended size of partition for win 10 Home on 500gb ssd? :)*Smile Recommended size of partition for win 10 Home on 500gb ssd? :)
