Wow no responses still. Did I make a mistake and post this in the wrong sections?
Accessing disks can only be done sequentially. It can not be in two places at the same time. This means that the best performance is achieved when the load is spread over all the disks you have. Look here: Adobe Forums: Generic Guideline for Disk Setup
That is of course great in theory, but there is a practical drawback, how to keep things easily organized? That is where you need to balance ease of use and performance. Your question is too generic and lacks details to give a clear answer.
Ah yes I totally understand what you mean for both the question and how disk access works.
I am mainly following the 5 disk setup. I guess what I am only asking is what do you think of my folder structure if I were to be running a 5 disk array 3/5? Reasons is I rather plan on going 5+ disk right away than to spread my files over 4 disks. This will help me stay organize.
I know, for the moment, I should keep my Media Cache in the OS hard dive and everything else in the 0 Array.
My apologies for the confusion.
Maybe the way I set up my system can help you.
