I still have a temp drive, habit from the past but it is not needed for the old reasons as others have said. I have the temp folders and gallery directories etc from Vegas and Resolve on it rather than clutter up the boot drive which in my case is a WD SATA 500G M2 drive. My default EDIUS directory is also on that drive. Since there are plenty of M2 slots on my motherboard I do have 2 x 1T NVME drives that I use to export from EDIUS to HQX or ProRes from the NinjaV as I know they are better used than my normal 6T source harddrive for these large files with faster data rates than h264 files. Got them both cheap as otherwise I would have stayed with SATA drives. In the past with slow drives I learned not to use one drive to read from and write back to and still do this now. Means the drives activity is low and never a bottleneck that I can see in normal operation. Depending on encoder used one can see on Moo that drive seek times are critical so the faster drive seek times will benefit.
