Should I bother making OS run on my new SSD?

My boot time is already like 15 seconds on my HDD already. What other benefits are there to running OS on my SSD that is worthwhile the hassle of moving it onto my SSD? I game most of the time.

Free up a lot of space on your HDD for games? And... ya'know be faster at doing regular things using windows 10 - moving tabs, opening tabs, searching through files that are native to the OS e.g. Program Files / P.F. x86 / Sys32 etc

so how exactly do you... run your os on your ssd if its on your hhd? plus how do you check if a hard drive disk has any data inside it

You need to move the actual OS over - I'm pretty sure there's a program that can help with it called 'Copyzilla'? Something like that, you can google it or watch a tutorial or read another website or wait for more people who know more about it :)

I would suggest moving the boot and windows files to the ssd to make most things faster, and I dont know how to move it over.

I’d suggest making a bootable USB with W10 on it. Clean install on the SSD - this is what was suggested to me yesterday ( I installed a NVMe drive )
