i do alot of photo editing and moving at least 100GB of data per photoshoot I do and from what i heard, a ssd will speed up my workflow however moving such large amounts of data constantly will kill the ssd. am i correct to assume that with current tech ssds are best suited just for programs and boot and not constant back and forth of large data moving.
i hate to buy a relatively expensive piece of tech only to diminish its lifespan faster than normal
The typical solution is to use an ssd for your operating system and software applications. Use a hard drive for your images. Use a third drive as a scratch disk. The scratch disk can be either an ssd or a hard drive.
This thread is about Adobe products. In most Adobe products you can specify that a scratch disk be used and choose the scratch disk settings. There's all sorts of useful information in the Adobe forums.
