I just recently upgraded to a C300 and I have some very newb questions on ssds.

1. I was wondering if everyone still backed up their ssd with Time Machine after upgrading to an ssd. I want to be as smart with writing to my ssd as I can and am not sure whether to back it up or not.

2. I use an external hdd for a majority of my data files and I was wondering if any writes are used on the ssd when you transfer data from a external usb hdd to a usb flash drive.

3. Would torrent downloading to an external drive write to the primary ssd drive?

I know that these are potentially obvious questions but I just want to be sure and be smart with my ssd. Thanks
