I can’t run my entire operating system from the ExpressCard SSD, but is there any way that my everyday system performance can still benefit from the ExpressCard SSD?
Yes, in addition to using the ExpressCard SSD as a portable general file storage as you would use a USB thumbdrive, you can also use the ExpressCard SSD in an efficient, high-performance “Hybrid” configuration. By migrating your “Documents and Settings” and program files onto your ExpressCard Ultra SSD drive, you will increase the overall performance of your system. At the same time, you will be expanding upon the existing hard drive storage capacity that is already inside your laptop.

Be sure to backup your personal files onto your regular hard drive, since removal of the ExpressCard SSD while the system is running may cause data loss on the SSD.

For more information on how to properly migrate your “Documents and Settings” folder, please read the following Microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/236621

Note: If you migrate your laptop’s “Documents and Settings” onto the ExpressCard SSD, your laptop will not be able to boot properly without the ExpressCard SSD installed.
