Nothing that I can see had changed in the intervening week, no updates or other preference changes. I know these things can come out of nowhere, and the causes are very hard to pin down. Buffer was at 1024.
So now I have upgraded the SSD to a 256GB 850 EVO, and I want to Bootcamp so I can run both Windows XP Pro 32 bit and 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) as required, since I want the ability to switch between the Windows and OSX partitions.... then I can use the best (least glitchy one) for recording. I'll transfer files to my home Win 7 PC for editing, so the MacBPro is for concert capture only.
Why the old OS's .....because they work quite happily with my ageing hardware interface (Audiofire 8), and i see no compelling reason to update. So my question relates to formatting the Windows partition....would you recommend NTFS or FAT32 for it ?
Since a typical concert, even with 8 to 12 tracks (max) running at 24 bit, 44.1 or 88.2 will generate less than 10GB....that's the maximum I see myself requiring, before closing the capture and transferring it out via a USB drive.
Do you see any distinct disadvantage to using FAT32 in this particular context...or any other compelling reason to use NTFS (and what about exFAT, as an additional option ?) .... particularly as I'm going to be exporting directly out of the XP partition to a Win 7 formatted drive (ie NTFS)
I'm assuming a service pack 3 version of XP Professional is the one to use ?
I'm thinking of allocating 80 GB for each partition (XP and OSX), and leaving the rest unclaimed to assist in SSD garbage collection, as over-provisioning
Thank you for any advice you can lend in this regard
