Would this work okay? I have a fast PCIe SSD that gets about 700MB/s read and write speeds. I got the 512GB version. I have a Windows 8.1 Pro partition for gaming that eats up about 180GB's. Because of that, my plan is to use my SSD as the "scratch disk" for my current projects because of it's obvious speed advantage. When I'm done with the project, I'll archive to my LaCie RAID 1 for backup. I know everyone recommends working off an external, but even my LaCie in RAID 0 cannot match the speeds of my internal PCIe SSD. I'm just wondering if this method seems like a sure fire way to get top disk speed performance while preserving my projects once finished on my archive disk for possible later use? If so, please let me know. If you have a better suggestion, shoot. Also, I am curious as to how you guys deal with file management and preparing a project to edit. Thanks! Edit: I found some great information in this thread, but it didn't really answer my specific question. I know it's "not good" to store your applications and media on one drive, but I thought that was because of the bottleneck of the drive. If 700MB/s isn't fast enough, what is?
