I'm in the process of setting up my new old Mac Pro (2012 Mac Pro). I bought a 500 GB Samsung EVO SSD to use as my boot drive. I'm curious if it is still a best practice to point the home folder to another drive? It seems this was ideal due to price/size of drives a few years ago. We were buying smaller drives and they usually were just about right for the OS and apps. Now the prices are better and the size is increasing. This mac won't have any iTunes media. I have another mac that I will be using for that. The only files I plan to keep on this system are current project files. The type of work I do is graphic/web design. So, the files would include large and small photoshop files to tiny web files. All archived work will be moved to my second system. Really only current working files, system OS and apps should occupy this drive. I also plan to install a copy of windows to another SSD. This will probably be half the size of the Mac OS drive. So 256 GB. And, then a third drive for backup. But this may end up as an external drive. Haven't decided yet. I'm really just wanting to know if it is still recommended to separate working files from the boot volume? I'd like to keep the speed of the SSD for everything. If moving the home folder is still recommended, should I get a smaller SSD for the OS? And, then make the current SSD for work files?
