Makes sense, thanks
I recently started with the screen shots also to keep a digital journal. Its helpful.
Quote from Bolimomo:
I think one should use SSD for startup as well as whatever temporary storage for the trading platform. Depending on how you trade, you may have a large pool of data needed through out your trading session. Or you may back test, and the platform needs temporary files.
Files that are more for archive purposes (e.g. if someone saves every tick for the past 10 years in the event that one needs to test out some new trading algo)... for me I save screenshots on all my trading computers about every 10 minutes throughout each trading session... those massive files can be stored more economically on a HDD as I don't access them often. And when I do access them, a few seconds extra is perfectly acceptable.
