Video Editing



2 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

Aloha folks,


I am about to purchase a new Hard Drive and would like to know if folks partition there drives for video editing?


If so, what is the advantage?





I partition all of my hard drives. I install the OS and a few programs on one partition, and install the bulk of my programs on other partitions. I also create folders for the data from those programs on a separate partition than the OS.


The reason that I do it is because, if the OS is corrupted to the exent that it won't boot up, I can reformat that partition, and install the OS again, and all of the data that I have on the other partitions is not affected.


That data will all get wiped out, if the drive is only one partition.


In the event of the failure of the OS partition, you will still have to install all of your programs, but there are certain settings in the programs on the other partitions, that will hold, if you install over the top of the existing "dead" program.


One additional thing that I do is back up my e-mail, almost daily. I back it up to a separate partition, so if I do a format C:\, I just import my e-mail back into IE, once I am up and running again.
