Accelerator Series Question

Recommended Posts

My current Operation system is running on a Corsair Force 3 120GB drive.


My steam library is on a WD Caviar black.


If I install an Accelerator drive, can I dedicate it to the WD black without interfering with my Force 3 boot drive?


How much more performance will I get loading steam games off it?

Another easier way would be to copy the steam folder with data to your primary SSD and symlink that folder to the original Steam location, so Steam would NOT notice that move at all:


just move (not copy) the main-folder to C:\, then open a terminal and enter:


​mklink /J "D:\Original-Steam-folder" "C:\New-Steam-Folder"


(Replace with your correct locations!!!)
