      Drive

      Characteristics of Drive

      Suggested use for Adobe Premiere Pro Cs6 ?

       

      C:

        SSD   Crucial m4 256GB SATA 6.0Gb/s     Sustained  read= 500MB/s SATA 6Gb/s

      Sustained Sequential Write= 260 MB/s SATA 6Gb/s  2  104GB FREE

      Os and Programs(everyone agrees with this ) plus "static page file" 46GB  for programs NOT back ground operations.  Is this ok? I have 32 GB Ram

       

       

      E:

      WD Black 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s

      931 GB Capacity

      878 GB Free

      * I'll move back-up to another external drive

       

       

       

      I could buy another  2TB matching Drive- WD Caviar Black 2TB 7200RPM SATA 6.0 Gb/s   or "use a swappable bay for your F drive, so you can easily make a backup of your media, since you will be needing your SxS or KxS cards for the next shots. If you use a swappable bay you can use multiple backup drives." Harm Millaard
