I have recently upgraded to a new laptop and I am looking forward to do a new montage . (see system specs below)
I am currenlty using proshow v6 installed on my C: drive which is the SSD drive. I also have a 1TB (5400rpm) HDD drive installed.
My question is, which drive should I be storing my media (ie photos) and which drive should I be saving the projects. I would assume that the SSD drive would be better/faster, but by using the HDD it affords me a less expensive route to remove and replace the drive when full. Any insight or thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
However, I don't understand why you would remove and replace your HDD if it started filling up. Don't let it fill up. If there's files you want to keep for long term storage move them off your internal drive to another drive, dvd, BD disc, or flash drive. I have a 1TB internal HDD that I try to keep no more than about 1/2 to 3/4 full at any given time.
I just started my first project on my new improved system last night and decided to work off the 500GB SSD since my main concern was the speed/responsiveness while creating and rendering the montage. I am currently storing the original .jpg images (small files) AND the show files on the SSD. So far pretty smooth. I will use the HDD to store any rendered MP4 or other files.
