I would prefer to be able to play my games without having to dismantle my laptop so many times, so I decided I would try to get a virtual drive. Preferably one I can put on the secondary hard drive(E drive) so I do not fill up C drive and cause to computer to get any slower.

I looked online and there are many options, but I decided I would ask for recommendations from people who may already use virtual drives so I would know what ones are good.

I use Windows 7, if that matters.
