After a lot of trouble with my disks & controllers I'm now in position to choose - so....
what would be the smartest thing to do -( in terms of over_all_performance AE / PPRo )- use my SSD disk as scratch disk OR as location for my sw & op.system ?
This is a great question for the Hardware sub-forum, and maybe the MOD's will move it for you.
Can you list the specs. of your full I/O sub-system? That might help determine how best to allocate your HDD's.
actually I've already made my choice - the ssd disk will serve as scratch from this very day until I'm otherwise convinced.
In my opinion the most logical (?) position - scratch disk beeing the most intense disk_io_bottleneck.
Maybe I'm wrong in my thinking here - I'll give it a try anyway
