So my ssd is almost full on 1st day

Spapbp

I copied my files to my new ssd, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB, and it too full install my games like BF4, BF3, and GTA5. Should I just try to find 130GB worth of stuff to delete or is there a better way?

Most of us would put OS and Programs on SSD, and put large files and mass storage on HDD...

250GB isn't that much when it comes to AAA titles, if you didn't know.

 

BF4 with all of its DLC is around 70GB or so.

I used to be quite active here.

Generally speaking you only store commonly used files on smaller capacity SSDs, not everything; even if it can accommodate it all.

I would invest and get a HDD, because you should really be leaving at least 10% of your drive empty as it will slow down dramatically if it doesn't have 'room to breath'. This will cause programs to open slower etc. 

 

You will get obviously slower loading times, but not that much faster on an SSD.

I can get away with putting windows, most of the adobe cc suite, avid, maya, 3ds max, autocad, Renderman, and all the common apps on a 120gb ssd and still have 30gb available.

250gb is too small for all that shit.

 

My  250gb is just my boot drive for everything, and I'm using nearly half it's space. My 500gb SSD is for games, and I only put games I play a lot, or really need an SSD for, and it's 1/3-1/2 full

I do have a 1TB HDD. I shunk it down to 200GB. I copyed that, which may have been really dumb, probably should have made it smaller. I have about 50GB left of the SSD now, so i have the breathing room. I think I will go through my stuff on the ssd and try to install the programs on the HDD and delete if off the ssd.
