I bought a pre-built system that came with 2 500 GB hard drives in a Raid0. I purchased an 1tb esata drive to add in. What is the best possible setup for Premiere Pro CS5.5? Should I leave the Raid0 or try to remove and split up the discs and if so, what should I put on each disc? I may also be able to add anouther internal disc (which would bring the total to 4 if I split the raid0) but I'm not sure yet if the mobo and psu can accomodate (which would bring the total to 4 if I split the raido)?
Any guidance would be much appreciated!
ps the system has an i7 2600 processor, 12gb ram and an nividia 560ti card...thanks!
My 3 hard drives are configured as...
1 - 320Gig Boot for Win7 64bit Pro and all program installs
2 - 320Gig data for Win7 swap file and video project files
When I create a project on #2 drive, the various work files follow,
so my boot drive is not used for the media cache folder and files
3 - 1Terabyte data for all video files... input & output files (*)
(*) for 4 drives, drive 3 all source files & drive 4 all output files
Search Microsoft to find out how to redirect your Windows swap file
Here's what I would do with 3:
500 GB - Windows & Programs
500GB - Projects, Scratch and Exports
1TB - Media
