Best configuration of drives, scratch disks, etc in new system for using Premiere?

I have recently had a new high spec edit PC built. It comes with 4 drives as follows:

Drive 1 - 250Gb SSD currently the root drive. This drive is dual boot partitioned with a 50/50 split of the 250Gb. On one partition is Windows 7, on the other Windows 10. Right now I have installed Premiere Pro on the Windows 10 partition.
Drive 2 - 500Gb SSD
Drive 3 - 1TB SSD
Drive 4 - 2TB 7200rpm HDD (ie not SSD)

So what would be the best configuration across these disks for the following:

Captured Video
Captured Audio
Video Previews
Audio Previews
Project Autosave
CC Libraries downloads
Project files
Media Cache Files
Media Cache Database

Thanks.

Hi Nigel
Fist you transfer the cards to disk 4. You must get also one more disk 5 external 4-5 TB and make copies off the the folders from 4th disk. You use the disk 3 for libraries extra music and media cache files end exrtra stuff.
Then you copy the projects and AV files to disk 2 and also you use disk 2 for previews. Renders go to disk 4.

The idea is to split the transfers betwin the 2 SSD. After a succesfull Edit you erase the 2nd disk and put the next project. The 5th Disk is optional in case that you use tapes but if you use cards having the stuff in only one place itn't a good idea.
So..
Captured Video - Disk2
Captured Audio - Disk2
Video Previews - Disk2
Audio Previews - Disk2
Project Autosave - Disk2
CC Libraries downloads - Disk3
Project files - Disk2
Media Cache Files - Disk3
Media Cache Database - Disk3
