Two SSDs and an HDD: what's the fastest possible configuration?
I've got a new production laptop with a 512GB SSD. I also have two external drives:
- 256GB SSD (USB 3.0)
- 2TB 7200RPM (USB 3.0)
At the moment everything is sitting on the internal SSD, including my sample libraries and WIP. Not having any issues with space.
I want to know if there's any performance benefit in splitting my files across multiple hard drives? E.g.
- Moving my sample library to the external HDD
- Moving Ableton's swap to the external SSD
- Moving my WIP projects to the external SSD
Are there any ways I can get improved performance, or is the high-speed internal SSD going to be best?
