Hi all,

I have two 1TB HDD's at the moment. Got a message this morning advising my D drive, with all my steam games on it is failing. Says to back up.

I was meaning to potentially switch to SSD, so now I am wondering if I should make that switch, or just buy another HDD and backup my files.

Any suggestions? If I should stick with HDD for now, any recommendations on which one?

Ok, well just FYI, but if you do get an SSD it would seem to be a waste for you to use it simply as storage and have your OS on the HDD.

Get a large SSD, and copy C drive to it, then copy D drive to current C drive(HDD).
