Would like some advise on the topic of scratch disk set up.My system is as follows:O.S.:Windows XP Pro W/SP3
H.D.'s:C:1 Western Digital 300gb 10,000 rpm,16meg
E:2 Western Digital 750gb 7,200 rpm,32meg (raid 0)
F:1 Western Digital 750gb 7,200 rpm,32meg
CPU.:Intel Core i7 920 2.66ghz
RAM.:3gig DDR3 Triple Channel
I use the C:drive for OS,and Programs,and I also save the adobe Program file there.I use the E:drive to capture my video and audio files.I use the F:drive to export for dvd rendering.Should I Specify folders on the E:drive for video and audio.Also what about the preview files?
Thanks For Your Help,
Unless you're working with Uncompressed, you don't really need a RAID 0. Any standard camera format will work fine with a single modern drive. So my recommendation would be to break the RAID and use each drive separately.
Keep nothing on C: but Windows and Programs. Put the project file and scratch disks on one of the broken out RAID drives. Put DVD exports on the other. Use the current F drive for media.
