I've got a 100 gig Raptor for samples. Not enough room for Trillian. Can I run an additional external Sata drive for Trillian or should I swap out the 100 gig for a 300 gig Raptor and put all the samples I have on one drive?
If you have the connectivity then adding another drive won't be an issue at all. Neither will upgrading the size of your current drive as long as you map it to the same drive letter (Windows) or volume name (Mac) as the original.

Don't forget that Trilian and Omnisphere use the same directory path so if you have Omnisphere too you'll need to put that on the same drive.
As an aside I suspect on OSX you could actually create an alias to Trilian inside the STEAM folder which points to the actual path of Trilian samples. I've not tried this myself but would be interested if anyone else has used this approach with success? Not sure if it would work in XP/Vista/Win7 though?
