One other thing you might consider is to off load all your storage to a remote drive. Have your main box loaded up with only what you absolutely have
to have to make it run, and put all your production storage on a remote drive. Yes, it's another device on your desk, but with the current USB and
other device connectivity speeds today it's almost seamless. THEN, if your storage fails (and it's backed up), all you have to do is replace your
storage, and your main compute is still good to go. 'High speed / Low drag'.
In our world of multi-million dollar high-density compute systems there is literally zero data stored on our compute devices. All they do is compute.
All the storage, even active, is vectored off to giant storage arrays which are mirrored in real-time (active-active). Now this may not seem
applicable, but it actually is. The point is, you want to reduce the overhead on your CPU as much as possible, and push all the other overhead off
onto your storage. This way you're not spinning cycles on figuring out where to put stuff at the same time as trying to crunch production processes.
It's not quite that simplistic, but that's the best analogy I can equate.
Translated to English...get an external SSD or HDD.
Just something to consider.
