Happy new year BCrs. I decided to kick off my " music production" this year with the most neglected part in my IT arsenal i.e. file management etc.
I tend to lump everything on my SSD drive, software, plug ins, tracks, user library the whole lot, leaving my HDD empty.
My plan is to use my internal SSD for DAW software and plug ins. Then dedicate my internal HDD for tracks audio recording.
Have an external SSD for samples and sound libraries and have a fourth external SSD for back up.
I'm sure this topic has been discussed previously but I can't find a link. How do you organize your files etc. There are so many articles on this subject.
Lastly, my download files folder takes up lots of GB. So , after let's say I install a particular software is it safe to delete the installer. Some websites say yes some have different views.
in my case I use a dedicated gaming laptop with only 250gb SSD and a 1tb HDD. My DAW is Ableton. I found good articles on Ableton site , but would be interested to hear/ share how you folks manage you IT stuff.
