After editing ads from TV shows recorded to HDD D:\ I delete the original to the Recycle bin on C:\ which is a new SSD. VRD is also installed on the SSD and it flies.
I empty the Recycle bin now and again. Most of the files there are very large. Am I shortening the life of the SSD?
Possibly not .... I do get the wrong end of the stick from time to time.I dont get this, if you have an SSD as your windows (C) drive, you install your apps to that SSD as well, including VRD.
You import your Video files that need editing onto the SSD, and you output them over to a secondary Hdd, either inside your computer, or possibly plugged into your Computer via USB3.
Am i missing something here ???
Unless I am mistaken, if you delete a file on any local disk, windoz will use the recycle bin ON THAT DRIVE. It is not stupid enough to move it to your C: drive.Possibly not .... I do get the wrong end of the stick from time to time.
To make clear I record TV files (which are very large) to an HDD . D:\ . To edit the adverts out I drag and drop them into VRD which is (as you thought) installed on SSD C:\. I output over to a secondary Hdd, plugged into my Computer via USB3 (again as you thought).
After the editing I go back to D:\ and delete the raw originals. This sends them to the Recycle Bin on SSD C:\ and later I empty the bin. It is the fact that those files are very large single files that worries me, rightly or wrongly.
I am aware that I can set VRD to delete the raw originals afterwards but I'd rather not as sometimes it has been handy to retrieve them from the bin.
