All my PC computers, have 2 120 GB Kingston SSD drives, 1 for the system and any programs I have installed, and the other for holding a fixed PageFile.sys, and for holding folders such as Contacts; Documents; Downloads; Favorites. If I chose, I could also have Music; Saved Games; Pictures; Searches; Videos; located on the drive. I also have my email clients folders stored on the drive.
 
By not having any personal data on the system drive, I do not have to think about which folders need to be copied or moved, before I perform an image backup of the drive. In addition, by not storing any personal data on the system drive, image backup files are smaller, and therefore, they take less time to create, and restore, which means that, If I need to restore an image to any of the systems, I am able to use that particular computer much faster.
 
One of my PC computers, which I call my server, has 4, 4 TB HDD drives, for storing the rest of my personal data.
 
If you went for the same configuration, you could add 1 or more SSD or HDD drives, to store the rest of your personal data.

Subject: if you were getting a new computer.

Hi all,

It looks like I can select what I want on the computer I am getting, so, I want your opinions.

What would you like on your computer? Since I am into music, and use music files for my global voice shows, I obviously want a good player, and, a good recorder to use. I want win amp as my primary player, and have been using virtual recorder, but  I’m open to suggestions on any  recorder you like. How much memory etc. would you like?   any of these thoughts are appreciated. I am running jaws 2018, but will be running jaws 2021 on my  new computer.[Jim
