    so i've installed the optibay drive on my MBP containing my original 300 gb hd, also i have a 64 gb SSD as a main boot drive. what would be the best way to have the 300 gb to store stuff but also have a partition with boot camp in it?
    would it also be able to be used as a scratch disk as well for ps, ill, flash?

    I'm not sure but I think the boot camp partition has to be on the same drive as the mac partition. So you could split the SSD and use the 300 as a storage/scratch disk.

    You can use the 300GB to install Boot Camp. If you have two internal hard drives (or SSD) then Boot Camp gives you that option.

    I'm in the process of doing a Boot Camp installation on my 13" MBP with Windows 7. I've opted for installing it on the SSD, but since you're space constrained, the 300GB will be fine.

    Windows will work much faster on the SSD, so you could very well split it, but ouchie on the space constraints. Good luck!
