Windows: If you’ve installed Windows on a solid state drive, you know how frustrating its space constraints can be. SSD Boost Manager lets you easily move programs and data between your SSD and regular hard drive with the click of a button.Say you have a small SSD, and don’t have room for all your favourite programs. Or, you have quite a few games, and can’t fit them all on the SSD at once. SSD Boost Manager will let you move a file on or off the SSD with just the click of a button, so you can get all the speed benefits of that program when you use it, but stash it away when you don’t need it. It does this by moving the folder and just creating junction links to its new location – so Windows still thinks the file is in the same place, while it’s actually sitting on your slower drive.
The program is fairly simple to use, even though its English translation isn’t the best. After you install, you’ll need to start the “junction” program listed in your start menu before you launch SSD Boost Manager, since it needs administrative permissions to run the processes. Once you’ve launched “junction” once, start up SSD Boost Manager and hit the EN button in the upper right hand corner to translate the program into English (it’s in French by default).
SSD Boost Manager is a free download for Windows only.
