This may be a PC 101 question, but I'm in the process of adding a second internal hard drive to my new XPS 8300, WIN 7 Pro x-64 pc. I have an external 2 TB HD that I use for backups.
I do a lot of digital photography with Photoshop Elements 8 and I'm starting to get into video processing with Photoshop Premier Elements 8 and Premier does take a lot of space. I'm wondering if I can get faster results by putting Premier Elements 8 on the new HD?
Or, should I keep the OS and all of the applications on the same HD and just put the data and files on the second HD?
Or, is there some better way to get faster results and have a more orderly work flow?
Lastly, any hard drives I should stay away from? I've read so much about so many, and if you do read enough you can find both glowing, and damning reviews on about every available HD.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and help.
