    Setting up MBP 2016 with SSD


      I just picked up a new Macbook Pro 15 inch (specs below), along with the MBP I have also purchased a 1TB Samsung T3 external SSD, and have two 1TB Seagate Back Up Plus HDDs.


      I'm new with the whole setting up hard drives deal, so if anyone would like to give me some advice on how I should be formatting my system for using Premiere and After Effects, I would greatly appreciate it!!
