    SSD/HDD/RAID0 for Premiere Pro

    NoahGoodrich

      Hi all,

       

      I have a quick question regarding multiple drives for Premiere Pro.

       

      I have the following drives in a Windows 10 system:

       

      1x SSD 960GB

      2x WD Black 7200rpm HD

       

      My question is this: which of the following two options would yield the best performance in Premiere Pro, After Effects and Lightroom?

       

      Option 1

      SSD for OS and scratch disk

      RAID0 on 2x HDDs for live project files

       

      Option 2

      SSD for OS

      Hard drive 1 for scratch disk

      Hard drive 2 for live project files

       

      I'd also note that redundancy is not an issue in this system, I'm only looking for performance here - I have an external RAID6 12 bay system for storage where files are regularly backed up (plus online and 3rd level alternate location backup)

       

      Any help is is most appreciated!
