I have an iMac with two external FW800 drives (one is the primary location, the other is the backup).

I use a referenced library (files outside the library) that lives on the System drive on the iMac.

 

From your experience, what is the faster solution?

- referenced library on System drive + files on external FW drive (as is)

- referenced library on external FW drive + files on same external FW drive

- referenced library on external FW drive + files on different external FW drive

- other

 

Thanks,

João

Note that drives slow as they fill so less full is better by definition for the System drive. If you want real performance replace the Ststem hard drive with a SSD.

 

Remember to back up originals first, before import into Aperture.

Frank's #1 is the faster option, Allen
