Well, first that doesn't explain why the system went flaky with the last KDE update
and was doing just fine before.
I was not talking about your problem when I was describing my system. I was just
pointing out that it is an old and under powered compared to current systems. And,
it is not having any problems after upgrade to F27 and being fully updated.
Also--and this might strike you as somewhat old-fashioned an outlook--no one has
ever explained to me why SDD's are non-volatile. Are they volatile or non-volatile?
Or am I missing something? And what is the maximum capacity of an SDD, and how
exactly do I manage to replace it?
Your questions as to the SDD technology is not relevant to this discussion. But
drive happens to be 275GB, has a SATA interface. So, unplug the HDD and plug-in the SDD.
But, again, you need to look at your system with "top" or any utility that shows
processes are consuming resources and slowing things down. Without that information
you'll won't have much of a chance.
