    Benefits of a Dedicated Scratch drive

    newwoodworker

      I have been having very good luck running Premeire Pro CS5.5 on my Dell XPS Studio (8 gig of ram) with one 2TB drive in it but running most of the jobs off of my 8TB Netgear RAID box. I am thinking about putting another 2TB drive inside the computer and use it as a scratch drive only. Will that improve anything in the performance? The only issue I have now is some slowing when I drop 30 minutes or more of video on a timeline. That is not a big deal but I'd like to have a better idea about if a dedicated scratch drive will step performance or reliability up in any way.
