Post subject:  How to go about SSD for XP Desktop ?

Have few questions regarding my XP 2GHz, 2GB RAM machine (or should I say museum item)

Firstly when I do defragmentation there are quite few areas that cannot be moved.
What are they and could I get rid of some of them?

Another thing, I would like to get SSD and SATA to IDE adaptor as my machine is 10 years old and has (I think) no SATA sockets.
(Where should I look at what IDE / SATA adaptor I need?)

I know that there are problems that XP machine is not too good for this type of conversion and somehow I would have to disable defragmentation.

But since my machine only sometimes is too slow for me, I might run it bit longer and use SSD in my next one should it die.
(Heard that Samsung 256 GB, 840 Professional is very good and I could even settle down to 128GB as now have 80 GB half empty, so it is not as if I will run out of space any time soon)

Looks like difficult question to answer.

What I want to do is:
- open computer
- find out what type of IDE socket or spare pin there is inside box
- find out about Professional 840 SSD 256GB SATA

- then buy appropriate adaptor to couple SSD to my IDE outlet.

I wanted to move operating system to SSD, so I can remove ageing Hard Drive

Since I never did it, I would like to find some info, so I can do it myself.

Just realised this is Windows Forum

Suppose wrong question for this Forum

However surprised nobody can help anyway.

Anyway, sorry for trouble and unnecessary waste of bandwidth.
