Default Cubase 4 (Which drive for cpr projects?)

Ok I've read the threads for best set up:

Drive for O/S
Drive / s for Samples
Drive for audio only.

My question is which drive do people save their sequencer saved projects to (Cubase / cpr etc)?


Life's a 'Pitch', but somebody has to do it!

It doesn't matter really for performance. It does however matter for safety - pick the drive you think it's most unlikely to fail.

Be sure to make backups too.

It DOES matter in performance, depending on how many audio streams are played or recorded.

I use three SATA2 500GB drives for music:

1st: System + applications + some small libraries
2nd: EWQL Libraries, BFD libraries
3rd: Recording + project storage

Re Pietro's point about making back-ups...

FWIW, for people who, like me, are a bit sloppy about rigorous back-up routines: I like to have a "working" back-up partition on a different physical drive from the one where the files (cpr, xls, doc, or whatever) are being saved. Then it's so quick and easy to drag a file or folder to the back-up drive, that even I do it often enough. Nothing but backups goes into any of those partitions, and I never actually open a file there (copy elsewhere). (I DO also do less frequent backups to optical disks - but it's good to know that all the important stuff has recent back-ups that would be safe unless there was a problem that lost data on both hard drives.)
