Ok, thanks Harm! I read it and yes, very helpful!
So according to the guideline and discussion a read:
C: SSD Samsung 840 Pro 128Gb *** Win7, Adobe Programs
D: Barracuda 7200.14 1000GB *** Media (meaning the videos I shot with camera) and Project Files
E: Barracuda 7200.14 1000 GB *** Media Catch Files, Captured Video/Audio and VIdeo/Audio Previews
Is that right? What is the PAGEFILE which is acoording to the list supposed to be on the C: SSD? And on the SSD disk is nothing else automaticly stored what could harm it? Thank you!
The pagefile is a dedicated file created and managed by Windows. It has no relation with PR. Windows uses it as a virtual memory file to store data that don't fit in the physical memory of your system. The lower your physical memory, the more Windows uses the pagefile. It is somewhat similar to growing older and you need to remind more stuff, but you tend to forget, so you write it down. On all systems I suggest to use a static pagefile, on that has minimum size and maximum size the same dimensions, so for instance a fixed size of 32 GB. If you do not make it static, but let Windows manage the size, as is default, you can get fragmentation of this file and it requires - on each change of size by Windows - new writes to the FAT, which reduces the lifespan of your SSD.
Your setup is exactly what my analogy alluded to. You are right.
Thank you Harm! (By the way, are you from Holland - I lived there ten years ago :-) ?)
I found the Pagefile in my PC. I have 8GB RAM. Do you suggest letting the pagefile on the SSD, or move it to HDD which I would buy? Win7 says it's now 8GB on SSD, don't know if that is what I should do...
