    Another Drive Configuration Question.


      Trying to come up with a HD configuration for my new Desktop rig running Premiere Pro CS6. I'll be editing mainly Canon DSLR footage and occasionally some AVCHD.


      I currently have five drives. Here's what I'm thinking...


      C: 256 GB Crucial SSD - Windows & programs

      E: 1TB WD Black - Project files, audio files, image files and misc documents

      F: 1TB WD Black - Scratch

      G: 1TB WD Black - Media

      H: 2TB WD Black in external eSATA case - Backup and exports


      Trying to avoid Raid 0 due to fear of data loss, but would consider if there would be a considerable preformance boost. Thinking I can probably can get by with single drives since I will rarely, if ever be using more than two HD streams at a time.


      Additional system info as follows:

      i7 3770K processor

      32 GB Corsair Vengence DDR3 SDRAM

      Asus Sabertooth Z77 motherboard

      GeForce GTX 660 - 2GB

      Corsair Gold AX850 power supply


      Thanks in advance for any imput.
