Of course the above can also be said for the windows pagefile; but prior to ssd I just used small partition on the system drive.
I have a second drive in the computer that I was going to use as a backup drive for "My Pictures". May be I should dedicate this for the pagefile and PS scratch file. I'll use an external drive for the backup. Is there a role for an SSD drive here ?
