Hi there,

Can anyone tell me if I need the media files, that I will be importing, to be on a local drive, such as a C drive?
Can the files exist on a cloud-based drive and be copied (when in use) to the same drive?

 

Many thanks

Best is to have a dedicated local drive (not being the bootdrive).

Media files stored in the cloud are fine for backup but not for editing.

You can keep your media on any drive you want as long as Premiere has access to them (otherwise you'll see "Media Offline" message in the Program Monitor.

Ideally, you want to keep media on a separate drive. I keep everything on an external portable SSD (all media). I use these:

They're fantastic and super fast.
