Mastering output. E:\My Documents\DVD Architect Pro 6.0 Projects\Mastered DVD. Media drive or leave it at this location.
The last thing is I will be adding another 128 GB SSD drive which I will use for render effects drive.
I would place all of the project on the RAID 10 drive (D:). I would have used a RAID 5 but that's up to you. I have only OS and Applications on my SSD (C:) drive and all of my projects on my RAID 5 drive.
As for the prerender folder, I keep that on the RAID 5 drive with the projects. I point temp files to the Users temp folder. Once you have a RAID it makes sense to just put everything on the RAID. That's whole purpose of having a multi-drive RAID (so that you don't have to worry about individual drives anymore and you let them work together to give the best throughput, which is also why I selected RAID 5 over RAID 10)
