One more thing:

To make it all even easier, there's Media Creation preference (orange box) in the settings list in Avid. Different tabs where you can specify the target drive (red box) for different types of possible media (green box). This way, you can automate the process at some extent and also exclude the chance of creating media on a shared volume. By the way, if it is a network drive that is shared (I mean, it is not a local drive of one machine, shared to another), then you don't even need to partition it. Here's how I see it:

SAN is the place "The Ingest" captures to. Editors have their personal folders (Editor_01, i.e.). Make them shared folders, then "The Editor 01" connects to his pesonal folder: Command+K, enter SAN IP Address/Editor_01 and he has that folder mapped as a network drive (green boxes). Therefore, Avid can use that "drive" to capture and etc (orange box). That is briefly.
And Bob, anticipating what you may say, I certainly understand that this is still a volume-based system, just put another way.
