I'd never heard of Ninite, DuckDuckGo or WaterFox, and I thought I was pretty IT savvy (at least, that's what I tell my employer!).
In a slight "me too" style hijack, I'm also expecting my new DAW system to arrive in a few days and have been thinking about how I set up my drives/partitions.
I've gone for a 240GB SSD System drive, and a pair of 1TB HDD for samples and audio. My current (now definitely dead) DAW has/had the expected OS and apps on the 500GB system drive, audio had a 1TB drive to itself, and samples and VSTs had their own folders on a 500GB HDD.
Is this a sensible way to do things? I think I read another thread here recently that stated that VST(i)s are generally pretty small (in terms of storage) and they could easily sit on a system drive and therefore benefit from the SSD speed boost when loading. Sample data for said VSTs would go on the sample drive, obviously.
Or is there a better way to use the drives on my new system?
