I need help from the techies. Please keep in mind I will be making assumptions below as I lack knowledge in this arena. As I prepare for the MP, I am trying to better understand what size PCI Flash Storage (SSD) to acquire. My computer currently has a 1TB HD and I come no where near that capacity ever. Based on my experience with Flash Cards (photo/video) the more they are used (loaded and erased), the faster they fail (obviously). Following this logic, it would appear that you wouldn't want to use your SSD the same way you utilized a standard hard drive (HD). For example, in addition to programs and OS, I place a lot of items on my Desktop and constantly use it as a temporary holding station until I delete or move the project to an external HD. Assumptions: 1) Utilizing an SSD for anything more than software programs will lead to a faster failure. 2) Utilizing an SSD for software programs and temporary holding spot for projects that are regularly edited, moved to external HD, and/or deleted has no impact on durability. 3) An SSD will/not outlive a standard HD Got to get back to eating now. Thanks all.
