|500GB WD Black||RAID 1||OS/System Files|
|1TB WD Black||None|
Video Previews, Cache
|2TB Black||RAID 5||Footage (DSLR video), also Itunes music library|
While it seems like directing cache and video preview files to a separate drive seems like the right thing to do, I am finding that I cannot play my itunes music while rendering a sequence (or while loading icon views of my footage within the project).
Should I direct video previews and cache to the same HDD / RAID 5 array as my raw footage?
Should I find another drive for my music library?
Yes move the preview files to the raid 5 and the Itunes to the 1TB.
