Hoping for reliable info on appropriate care and management of modern SSD drives.
I was just gifted a new 50 GB Revodrive PCI-E card, and am new to the world of SSDs. I'm thinking of popping it into my HTPC and putting Windows 7 on the drive with an additional HDD RAID I currently use for my media.
I've been trying to read up on appropriate care and optimization of SSDs, and I can't seem to find straight answers on how best to set them up. Some people advocate no tweaking at all. Others recommend moving caches and temp directories to HDD. Others refer to the recs
from Tweak Town, which are over a year old and somewhat contentious.
I ask you: how best to ensure a usable drive life of 5 years, while getting the most bang for the buck out of this drive?
