The performance hit alone is enough reason to not bother.

Buy a network drive and store all your files there.


Keep the whole machine lean and clean!!

yep for at home invest in a NAS, also means all your other devices can access the data/media/files locally via WLAN, LAN or even via internet if you want.

I get by with Win7 slimmed down to under 20Gb. game data on another drive container (RAID0) and all user "data" music, films, tv, game patches etc etc all on my NAS.
