Here's what I'd do:
C: System - 120GB SSD
D: Projects - 120 GB SSD
E: Scratch - 500 GB Raptor
Thanks very much, Jim. It sounds like I do not need to put any of these in RAID configuration. Does that hold true for the media (F drive), because I could put a second HD on a media array if it made any difference.
Thank you again,
My preference would be to fill up all five base slots - System, Projects, Scratch, Media and Exports - with single drives before making any of them a RAID. Once those five are in place, the next step up for me would be a RAID 3 for the Media, which requires at least three drives and a separate controller card, as no motherboards will have RAID 3 built in. After that I'd make the Projects drive a RAID 1.
An external backup applies at every stage.
Wonderful reply. Thanks so much, Jim! I will make it so.
