    SSD/HD configuration -- premiere pro/after effects


      Hi all,


      I'm looking for some input on how to best set up my drives. I've purchased and assembled all the parts on the list below. I've installed windows 8.1 on the SSD. The only thing left is to configure the other drives...any advice? I'm pretty novice at this so please bear that in mind.
      Here's what I'm thinking:

      Drive V (video): RAID 0 (2x2TB HDD)

      Drive X (export): 1TB X drive for exports, but not Page File. Note: This is where rendered projects will be exported to.

      Drive C: 256GB SSD

      Also, I'm not sure where media cache files, render previews, or anything else should go... any info you guys can provide would be much appreciated! Again, I've built this thing already so buying additional parts isn't an option for now.
