Are the systems to small for a 1tb os disk?
What about memory how are they in terms of memory and is the
memory the fastest for the motherboard? I recently baught a
dellxsp system that is a good system that has an i7 processor in
it with 2 hard drives. 1 of the drives is a 4tb drive but I'll
have to check the speed. I think that the os is a ssd drive but
i'll check that just to make sure that it is fast as well. I do
have some questions as to how can I get extra software off of
the drive that I didn't ask for? Thank you for any information
that you might have concerning my questions.

I am also going to upgrade
our computers very soon, although in the case of our
systems, I will only need to replace the motherboards
and the central processing units (CPU(s)). The type of
motherboards, will depend upon whether I choose the
Intel I7 or, the AMD equivalent. I will probably remove
the CD/DVD drives, when I upgrade the systems, as I
recently purchased a USB external CD/DVD drive. The
systems in our home, have the following drive
2 120 GB SSD drives, and at
least 1 HDD drive for storing data. 1 of the SSD drives
is the system drive, which only holds the operating
system and any programs which are currently installed on
them, and nothing else. At present, all the system
drives indicate that the total amount being used on each
system drive, is about 40 GB.
the second SSD drive,
which is drive F: in all the systems, holds the
following folders, which have been moved from the system
drive to drive F:, Contacts; Documents; Downloads;
Favourites; Dropbox; and the folders used by the
preferred email client. In addition: Music; Pictures;
Saved Games; Searches; Videos; can also be moved to
drive f:. Unfortunately, in Windows 10, there does not
seem to be a way of moving: Microsoft Edge Backups; One
Drive; or the Public folder; from the system drive to
drive F:. I do not use Microsoft Edge or One Drive,
however, I would have liked to have been able to move
the Public folder to drive F:, as I was able to do in
Windows 7. Lastly, drive F: can be used to store the
Windows pagefile.sys file
By moving the
abovementioned folders to drive F, and not using the
system drive for storing miscellaneous data, it means
that when I use Image for Windows to create image
backups of the system drive, I do not have to worry
about losing up-to-date important data, if I need to
restore an image to the system drive in the future. This
would also apply, if I were to use other imaging
The HDD drive, I use to store any other form of data.

Subject: Specs for a
new desktop computer
It’s looking like I
will be searching for a new desktop computer. I
have not been able to figure out what makes the
most difference in the speed or snappiness of
the computer when using Jaws with typical
applications. So, I’d appreciate any
information you techy types can pass along.
I know Ram makes a big
difference. What I don’t know is how much RAM
is helpful and how much is overkill.
How much difference
does multiple thread processing make? How many
threads are a good number to shoot for?
How much difference
does an SSD drive make? If they make a
significant difference in speed, what files
should be on them?
Being totally blind I
don’t need a fancy display. But, does a better
video card affect the speed of the computer?
Are there other ways to
increase the speed of the computer?
