    How to realize potential of a hybrid HDD?


    I have work laptop with hybrid HDD. I have 32Gb of fast SSD space and the rest.

    Is there a way to make sure some stuff is using SSD space. For one I'd like to have my hibernation file to be there, I have 8Gb RAM and waking the laptop takes long many seconds (I have my personal laptop with nice and fast Samsung SSD and comparing it to the hybrid make me cringe! )..

    Any ideas?

    Okay..... I just looked at the actual Seagate data sheet and it has 8Gb of SSD space not 32.. and also I understand now - it has its own logic in the controller to decide what files to keep in the fast area... So my question above doesn't make sense.. Sorry for the confusion but I cant delete it..

Hello, I recently purchased an OCZ Vertex 4 (240GB), which I'm using as my boot device, and for gaming. I also have a 1TB 7200 RPM HDD. I'm trying to decide what I should be using the HDD for. I'm aware that an SSD has limited read/write cycles in its lifetime, but I'm really not too clear...
I'm starting to think that MS may simply keep Win 7 as a long term offering which will supply the more serious and business users, while Win 8 will be available as an optional OS offering for the consumer . I think that may be the best bet for MS.... I think that is the ONLY way they are...
