for the ram: i don't see anything changing from last time you asked. have the customer/users monitor ram usage.
your old thread:
adding more ram likely wont give a performance boost, unless the software is using all the available ram and there is very low or no free memory. you could check the memory usage while the programs are being used to see what the software is using for memory and how much is still available/free.
for the ssd: if 1tb of space is actually needed, have you considered using a smaller 256-500gb ssd for os/apps/cache and using the 1tb boot hdd for larger files like media storage?
smaller SSDs make it the solution quite complicated not just to install but to 'clone' and technical notes for a very non-technical user
what is 'different' is that the customer has said installed/setting up SSDs was too expensive and complicated a solution
the ONLY solution they would entertain would be to upgrade the RAM
what i did was to point the scratch disk to the 'clone' hard drive for illustrator 2015.3/2017 and photoshop 2015.5/2017
instead of the boot drive
its free !
i'll see how it goes
