I have a new, speedy Dell desktop machine with 2 drives, my C drive is solid-state, the D drive isn't, but it's internal and it's fast.
I have a huge home-movie project and 200 hours of digitized MiniDV tapes to work through. I'd like to set things up properly now in order to keep from having problems later on.
Please advise me on where to point the various file types - scratch files, media files, cache files, .prel files, and so on?
Should I keep everything on C? Or should I use D for audio files, or other specific files to optimize speed? Where should my .prel files go? Or doesn't it really matter?
I appreciate any help very much!
Assuming your D drive is huge and your C drive not so much, I'd keep my program files on C and keep all of my media and project files on D.
With today's superfast computers, you won't get a huge speed boost by doing this -- but it is nice housekeeping.
Leave the scratch discs, etc., as is. No need to complicate things by tweaking them -- particularly since Premiere Elements can be a bit uncooperative in that regard.
