i dont know how computers workand i dont know if i have been shooting myself in the foot for the past few years or notAnyway, I'v had an ssd for a while but its not huge, only 128gigs. I use it for program installs and windows stuff.All my assets, textures, work etc is saved in another drive, a HDD, because I simply can't afford an SSD big enough, all my assets and projects are over 1TB. Anyway. To my point, should I actually have me program, like substance for example, installed in the same HDD or in the SSD?Right now, they are in the SSD, but i notice loading in textures libraries and shit takes a fair bit of time and I can't help but think its cos they are on seperate drives.Will I see better performance if I start installing my 3d applications on the same drive?I know, ideally, everytihng would be on SSD but if I could I would. I'm just wondering if its better to have them on the same drive than just have the programs on the SSD..Pls help
>>698158It's such a non-issue that it doesn't matter.Use the questions or discussions thread next time please.
>>698159how is it a non issue?i dont think the difference would be nelegiblealso, i refuse to use the question thread, thats for blendlets
>>698161It absolutely would be. You're only loading the shelf into memory once. Really RAM would be more helpful.
>>698158It's better to have things spread out over multiple drives. RAID0
>>698158ITT: No one knows wtf they're talking aboutFirst off, /g/.Second off, keep your program on the SSD. HDD takes forever to read and write, so if possible, try and keep references onto the SSD as well
>>698162so its not a non issue, you answered my questioni should leave the installs on the SSD and not worry about having them on the same drive as my assets
>>698164i didnt wanna go to /g/ and then get a bunch of replies from nerds that dont do at least do similar workat least asking here im sure people have an answerand i got one thanks anongonna have to just hold out till i can get abigger SSD
>>698158Programs on the ssd. Are you using the latest version of the substance softwares as loading has improved. If the project file is on a hdd then of course loading will be longer. I have an m.2 ssd and loading can still take a while in substance if you use big textures or have a big library.
