    what is the scratch disk and what should I set it at? edit > preferences > plug-ins and scratch disks

    my primary is set at start up - options: start up, C and F drive
    secondary is set at none - options: C and F drive

    What is it best to set these at? I also have other graphics including 3D programs that I don't want performance affected by changes? Any help would be great

    Brandon,

    Scratch disks work most efficiently when set to a drive other than the drive
    that holds the system pagefile, so if your pagefile is on the c:\ drive then
    there may be some advantage to setting the primary scratch to F:\ PROVIDED
    that your F:\ drive is not a considerably slower drive than the c:\ drive
    AND it has plenty of free space on it.

    'Startup' refers to the system startup drive which is normally c:\
