    Many cash strapped offices use them. In the millions

    So it's not making the drive perform any faster is just reducing the load on the drive when the systems in use, it's a good move but nothing earth shaking.

    Still using two here in my system.

    1TB SSD (Main drive)
    2TB HDD 2.5 Inch (3 Partitions for various uses)
    2TB HDD 2.5 Inch (Acronis True Image backups)

    Why slow 2.5 Inch drives? They're twice as silent as a big one. And still i use them inside a HDD silencer which makes them completely inaudible and stll fit in a HDD bay.

    In an era when they are almost obsolete, good move Micrsoft, always a decade behind.

    I think in general, more rigs will have a HDD in them than not. Usually as backup drives, or for some less demanding games that don't need fast reads. Whatever tweak to make them "faster" is always welcome.

    Looking forward to a more intelligent indexing.
    I am still on prehistoric spinning rusty harddrives in my mediacenter/NAS.
    2x 8Tb spinning platters. Money left over to buy a RTX2080ti EDIT: maybe only a 2080 or super but still EDIT
    or
    4x 4Tb SSDs and a raidcontroller, power splitter cables, 2 meters tape to mount it all in ITX mediacenter chassis.

    i think some didnt see the "sarcasm mode: on" for your comment

    @TheDeeGee
    i sometimes still have phantom hdd noise that i hear, even that i switch to nand years ago :D
    but especially after moving image storage to m2 i wont go back to hdd.
    "giggity", when your OS drive is imaged in 1 min :D
