SSD + SATA - Which should hold what?

Subject: SSD + SATA - Which should hold what?
by Raziel on 2019/5/17 17:50:31

I know there are lots of blogs and infos out there telling me what would be best to use with what kind of data, but those are all for Windows and Linux systems, so i'm asking here.

I want to take the load/wear off of my SSD (with AmigaOS on it) by splitting some of my partitions onto a PATA HDD.

Has anyone tried to share data/partitions between an SSD and SATA HDD and what would be the best combination?

I'm not talking about copying stuff over, but how would both (physical) HDDs perform best in an Amiga?

I have the following (all of my partitions for now):

OS - Fast bootup, lots of accesses during running the OS, while being small files (my pick: SSD)
Tools - Seldomly used, rather small files (my pick: SSD, as it's not going to grow anytime soon anyway)
Development - all of the porting stuff, together with the SDK - (no pick yet, biggest wear on the SSD imo, so in favour of SATA)
Games - Seldomly used, lots of big files (my pick: SATA)
Storage - pretty much the same as Games, but mostly crunched and even bigger files (my pick: SATA)
Cache - Disk cache, used on every boot and lots of accesses during OS (also wears down the SSD, i guess? - so SATA?)
