  1. Hard Drive Question

    I have a technical question. Not sure this is a problem waiting to bite or not but am not a hardware maven so I thought I'd pose the question to those of you who are. The machine came with Win10 factory installed. My hard drive installation looks like this... = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = C: Factory installed SSD - 120 GB Only about ~12 GB free Program Files (x86), Windows folders account for a good sized chunk of the used space = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = D: Factory installed HDD - 1.0 TB 930 GB Free = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = HDD 2.0 TB - in a breakout box, connected by a USB 3.0 connection through a powered hub, partitioned as... K: 1.0 TB - 390 GB free L: 1.0 TB - 750 GB free The connection is USB 3.0 all the way to the PC - breakout box, cables, hub and PC port are all USB 3.0 so it goes at 3.0 speeds. This is a HDD internal drive salvaged from a dead PC, still working well and too big to not put to good use. The breakout box/USB 3.0 connection is reasonably fast and makes a good data drive. This is a usable resource, but of course not fast enough to consider as a home for P3D V4.1. = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = I just bought P3D V4.1 but haven't installed it yet. Obviously it needs to go on D:. My question is... Does having only 12 GB of free space left on C: look like a problem that will bite me in the future? If so, what should I do about it? I don't see this as necessarily related to the pending P3D V4.1 installation but it looks a little ominous to me. Advice appreciated. John
  2. Hello to all. I have read hundreds, if not thousands of posts. Thank you all for your help. I am in the final stages of building my first computer solely for fsx. I am a real world pilot. I need help configuring my hard drives. I have 3. A Seagate 2tb hdd, a 500gb velociraptor, and a 750 gb samsung evo. For the best performance, loading times, where do I put fsx, the os, scenery, and aircraft. I plan on having a lot of payware ad ons. Thanks for all your help. Your advice has been invaluable to me. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Steve
