    Default Quick ? - HMArchive Folder - should i put it on the SSD or my data HDD

    Hi all,

    Just built my first ever PC despite having no clue. How proud I am that it works and nothing exploded demonstrates just what a tard I am.

    The HMArchive Folder is put on my SSD with HEM and the OS by default- should i leave it there or move it to my data HDD for the best performance, or doesnt it matter?

    Space isn't a worry at this point

    Thanks in advance for any responses

    The archive folder just stores the original hands after they are imported so it doesnt really matter where you put those

    It shouldn't matter, but I personally would have it on my data drive. It is typically safer for your most important data to not be on the same physical drive as your OS. If anything happens to your PC and you need to reformat they would get wiped out as well.

    Thanks for the help,

    especially with it being you two posters, your answers to other peoples questions have been massive helps to me too, and have stopped me creating many many more threads!

    You make great contributions guys, and they are much appreciated.
