    Depends on your drives and how you have setup your system.

    SSD's move files within a single hardrive and or partition rather seemlessly.

    AKA.

    C:/ Drive is a SSD but in computer explorer you see

    C:

    and

    D:

    This could mean that your single SSD has been partitioned into two drives- which means movement between the two will be seeemless.

    Now if you have an SSD and a HDD which are seperate drives, the drives are limited to the ESATA rating as well as their writing speed. (They tend to be held up more on writing speed then the wire ratiing)

    So

    Short answer - If you moves files in an SSD drive it is extremely fast and will help the speed of any processes you are working with.

    If you're copying and pasting to the same drive, it will read MUCH faster. If you're copying and pasting to other drives/online locations, you're limited by those other drives/your connection speed. Keep in mind that SSDs aren't quick at writing, but are blazing at reading.

    What you may want to look at is the i/OPs rate.

    The higher the better, but it is actually what will cost you the most.

    25k is a good average. 10k is a bit low.

    I just got an SSD and it's way faster. It feels like my whole computer has sped up like 5x what it used to be. I'd highly recommend it. As for transferring files from a sata drive to ssd not sure about that.

    I'm going to copy paste in the same drive which will be on SSD, do you think it will be fast, because you say writing is slow, and I think when copy is reading and pasting is writing, is it really slower than normal drive or faster than normal drive.

    Thanks

    Avo.

    It is highly suggested to use a specialized program if you are planning to move your OS from a HDD to SSD.

    If you are planning move your computer as it is, its best to research this as I know there are problems trying to transfer them from convention HDD to HDD methods.

    Also,

    Yes, your computer will be faster. The average boot time from power on to OS operational is 4-8s.

    Remember - you will only be faster IF.

    Your programs and files are being operated on that SSD. If you have two seperate (1SSD 1HDD) drives the performance will be negligible.
