Newbie coming from FCP to Adobe Premiere

Hello everyone just got my Adobe Production Premium today and have a rookie question as I am coming from Final Cut Pro. When setting up a new project I would save my project on my C drive and and Scratch disk capture audio video previews and audio previews on my D drive which is my media drive which is a raid 0 but soon will be a raid 5 is this correct? I am editing AVCHD.

I have my programs on C drive my scratch on D and media on E. I NEVER put anything on my C drive other than programs. This is just the way I do it. It will be interesting to find out how other people manage their drives.


Just out of curiosity, what made you switch?

My F drive is a raid I use it for uncompressed capture. I also have three more drives that are mounted in removable trays. These trays are where I put the source files and backup projects.

C: OS and Program Drive
D: Read Drive: Media Drive with project files, etc.
E: Work Drive: Scratch/Cache
F: Write Drive/Backup

I keep the four drives separate to gain maximum speed. A drive can only do one thing at a time. Also, if I have multiple programs open, like Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop, I might also use the F drive as a Cache drive, but that depends.

In addition to the above, there are always backup drives and external drives for final project writes, etc.

D & E are Raids. But I'm waiting for the OCZ X2 PCI drives to arrive in India and I'll probably swap everything!
