Can I place content film clips for Premiere Pro on SSD drive that also has the Project files?

I know it's best to keep things spread around...

 

All drives are SSD: 

C: PPro, AE program installed  (750GB FREE)

E: Project Files, Page File system (400GB FREE)

F: Film Clips  (drive almost maxed out, can't use)

G: Cache Disc for PPro and AE  (750GB FREE) 

Z: This disc for exports, and for exporting the final bluray disc to. I figure leave it alone for best writing ability.

 

C: E: or G: ??

 

Where would you add extra film clips to? So nothing will get bottlenecked when processing and exporting.

Make a partition? if that helps?

 

Thanks for looking at all this, and thanks for your advice.

Thanks for that! 

I was thinking G: because that has a lot of free space, but...

When exporting a sequence, does Premiere use any of the cache files on G:  OR does it just use the original film clip file on F: ?  I don't use 'rendered files' in any export... is that why drive G: is ok to use??

Thank you!!!

Do a test export each way.

Yup, I think I'll go with G:  because if PPro is going to G for cached content, then the "clips" should fall in that same category as content.  Seems logical.

 

Thanks again for your advice!

Best,
