Right now i have one hard drive prationed is a 120 gb. I have my operating system and sonar and kontakt and and all the kompakt players on the c drive. The samples are all loaded on the d drive. Rembmer these are not seprate drives its simply a partition. Now when ever i use kontakt and load up some intruemtns of course i get massive popping and clicking, the cpu pings up and the dfd pings up. i have about 20 gb free on the d drive. Now what i was think ingwas this.
Getting a new raptor hardrive 75 gb, and loading all my samples on that drive, so that included bfd and bfd xfl, atmosphere, gold, opus 1 and so on and so fourth on the new hard drive. so i figure on athe new 75gb drive i will have about 5 or 6 gigs left over.
Question, will it hurt me having it almost filled up, i have heard that having it to compaticy hurts performace. Also will having this new hard drive with samples only on it help my dfd and cpu from not spikeing so high.
Liek i said only samples on the new hard drive and the sonar and the kontakt and the kompacts and the bfd interfacea the like will remain on the origranl hard drive. I am i think this through correctly, is this the best way to do it.
by the way i am runing ap4 2.6 with 1gb of ram.
Thanks in adavce for all you ideas
