    Newbie with two HD - what is best config setup?




      I am learning Premiere Pro CS4 and other Adobe applications for web-video.  Before I set up project files, I hoped someone could help me in setting up folders on what drives.  I only have two drives to work with:


      1) 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive.  Windows7 64-bit is loaded on this drive with all software


      2) 1.5 TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 3Gb/s 1.5-TB Hard Drive.  I have stored photos and music only on this drive.


      Does anyone have suggestions on where I should have my scratch discs, render, media - separate from project files?  Should I put everything on Disc 2 or all media and projects on Disc 2 and scratch on Disc 1?  A friend gave me this outline for FCP and I am curious if it applies to Premiere Pro for everything on Disc 2.


         Create Boot Drive and Media Drive Folders

              Boot Drive Folder - FinalCut Projects

                      Client Name

                          Client Project ie CN01_Swimsuits







              Media Drive Folder - FinalCutDocs/Scratch/Render/Media


      Thanks for your help in advance!
