For my SOHO network, I prefer a "small/fast" drive (e.g. SSD) for the OS and "smaller" data, and a "large" drive (e.g. 7200 RPM SATA) for "larger" data (downloads, music, pictures, video, etc.; shared via Samba).

Back up your settings and data, wipe your system drive, do a fresh install (choose manual partitioning; I do 0.5 GB boot, 0.5 GB swap, and 13.4 GB root for 90% of 16 GB), and restore your settings and data.
