no chance of keeping both your OS and DCS on the ssd?

i’d hate to have to choose. but if push comes to shove i would let the OS have the ssd.

you spend more time in the OS than in DCS

In the end, you want both to be on SSD of any kind, separate or together, Sata or NVMe, just try to get that HDD out of your way in 2019.

If you really work with your PC, do it as etherbattx says.
If you mainly fly DCS on it and hardly any other real stuff, use it for DCS.

Both has drawbacks.

You can easily move it to the SSD, by right clicking on the Saved Games folder -> Properties -> Location -> Move
