I've recently made the switch from FCP 7 to Premiere and I'm trying to setup my hard drives. I've been reading up in the forums, but I'm still not sure on the best setup. I work with Canon DLSR footage 90% of the time. Here are the drives I've currenlty got it setup at below, but I'm willing to swtich it up to something better.
300GB WD 10,000 -- OS, Programs, Pagefile
2TB WD 10,000 RAID0 -- Media & Projects
2TB WD black 7200 -- Preview, Media Cache, Exports
2TB WD green -- Time Machine
Thanks in advance
I'm not an expert on the subject, but I don't think there is any benefit of the RAID on the M&P drive if you don't have a RAID on the P, MC, & E drive. From what I've read on the forum, I believe that makes for an unbalanced setup.
Here's what I'd recommend:
300 GB - System
1TB - Projects
1TB - Scratch
2TB - Media
2TB - Exports
Your drives and your drive setup both look pretty good to me. Possibly moving previews to your RAID could help. Realize too that fine tweaks at the level of performance you already have may help part of your workflow (i.e. timeline work) vs. other tasks (renders).
