    Hard Drive setup for CS5 master collection

    cjacs987654 Level 1

      Dear All,


      I am looking for advice on what drive configuration to use. I am currently reformatting all drives for a new cs5 install and have the following drives:



      1. WD Raptor 10000rpm 150gig

      2. WD Raptor 10000rpm 300gig

      3. Seagate 7200 rpm - 1.5tb

      4. Seagate 7200 rpm - 1.5tb


      I have read various forum messages, but need some clarification on what to install on what drive


      I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with 6 gig memory and i7 processor


      I assume windows is best installed on either of the faster WD drives. and my  video projects on the seagate drives.


      Where should cs5 program files be ?


      I have raid options but dont know a lot about the best set up


      Any advice most welcome, would like to try to get it right first time!
