Hi, I'm planning to buy a Samsung 830 SSD, either 128 or 256 GB, for my MbP 15" (Late 2011). My questions are less about the technical stuff but more about how i can work best with it. My first question would be whether there's a difference which drive i put in which bay. Can i boot from the optibay the same way as from the hdd bay? Or do i have to mind anything. I'm asking this because I want to know whether it's possible to boot from the old HDD to format the SSD and to create a USB Lion image, then install Lion on the SSD and then boot from the SSD to restore data from the HDD. So without any third drive that i need to copy a backup on, 750GB with USB 2.0 is quite a hassle. Hope you got what i meant.. Second thing. Can i partition the SSD the same as my old HDD? I need to install Lion as well as Win7 on a boot camp partition, both on the SSD. The old HDD will be used as my data-drive. Concerning that: I've read that I can 'outsource' my User-folder to the HDD. My question here is whether it's a good solution or not. The User-library is in the User folder too, and afaik it's constantly accessed by e.g. safari, itunes etc. So does the HDD really turn on and off every time i need the User library? Really concerned about that. I'd really only want my HDD to spin when i access my stored data on it, not just only because i e.g. changed a bookmark in Safari. Because if that's the case, I'd still have the HDD noise and "moving sensitivity" and maybe even slowdowns even though I'm running my OS on an SSD which would be quite pointless. I hope someone read theough this and can help me with this matter. I'm sure there's someone with the same/similar setup who's gone through this already Or maybe someone has a tip for me on how to setup my drives/folders/programs the smartest way. My main goal is to minimize the use of the HDD.
