    Hi there

    a free program called TREESIZE FREE is a good program to analyse what's on your drives.

    as for SSD's - fine for OS + programs -- but there's no point in storing a load of data files on these. For video editing most of the work is CPU intensive rather than data access related so for improvement it's a good idea to have temporary / work areas / scratch files to use the SSD - photoshop for example when you have a large number of layers for an A2 size professional print. These files are temporary and aren't saved at the end of the session.


    Are you sure about the Tree Size Website Jimbo ( I think Terrypin is already using it btw) , IE wont let me go there due to a Cert. Error and Brave just shows a Blank page.

    It works OK for me (Firefox). And yes, I do use it.

    Hi PiKo, and sorry for the delay of over two years in replying! I saw your last post now only because I'm re-visiting the topic.

    "What makes the difference?"
    You missed the top line of my Tree Size screenshot, showing 57.2 GB of user data - mainly my Dropbox folder.

    "I suppose that in your backup settings you keep backups or file histories of your C drive on the C drive."
    No, why would you think that? Wouldn't be a very sensible strategy IMO!

    I have heavy insurance against lost data. After intensive work on a complex video editing project or spreadsheet I'd hate to have to lose even a day's work. I could tolerate a week's, but certainly would not want to have to resort to a month old image on which the work would obviously not exist. I use a 'conventional' app, my ancient SecondCopy. I backup data from C: (SSD) and D: (4TB HD) both daily and weekly. Daily C goes to D, and weekly to an external USB drive. Daily and weekly D (excluding the C backup) goes to another external USB drive.

    "... and forget all Windows imaging."
    Could you clarify that please? Do you mean I should rely on only the 3rd pary imaging app and disable the built-in one? Or abandon imaging my Windows OS altogether?
