Windows XP MCE core 2 duo 4GB RAM installed
I am adding a couple of internal hard drives to change my drive setup as follows:
(The drive letters may be changed, but I used these for reference here. All SATA drives.)
C: 500GB - operating system
D: recovery partition on same disk as C:
J: 500GB - page file, media cache, scratch disk
K: 500GB - music
L: 500GB - My Documents
M: 2TB - media
N: 2TB - backups
If I move My Documents from its current location (C:), will it prevent some programs from working properly, since they have folders which were installed in My Documents at the time of the program installation? For example: Premiere Elements and Premiere Pro have an "Adobe" folder . Bluff Titler has an "Outerspace Software" folder, etc.
No, but you may have to set the programs default location to the new location.
I'll go ahead with it after I make an Acronis Image, just in case.
By the way, my impetus to do this (separating things onto different drives) was your thread about how to configure drives for NLE.
I realize that my system and processor is marginal for Premiere Pro, but it works. I'm hoping that this will make it work a little bit better.
Every little bit helps, as is shown by my lacking hardware, which should be far outclassed by much faster i7-980X, faster memory and faster disks, but still holding position # 1 in the PPBM4 Benchmark but I know my days are numbered.
