Hello all,


I did a quick search and couldn't find exactly what I'm looking for so I'm hoping the community here can help.


I'd like to switch the entire content of my original scratch-disk to a new (faster) HD.  Would this be a matter of copying and pasting everything FCP related into the new HD, setting the new scratch-disk to point to the new HD and then locating all my files again at start-up of the project?


I'm switching HD's b/c:


1.  My old drive kept hanging up (too slow) and it made editing almost impossible at times.

2.  It was running out of space.


Thank you!
