Chapter 3. Presets and Preferences > Setting Scratch Disk Preferences

Setting Scratch Disk Preferences

A scratch disk is a folder on a hard disk where Final Cut Express stores your captured media source files and render files. The default scratch disk location is the same hard disk where your Final Cut Express application is installed. You can specify multiple scratch disk locations, either to improve performance by capturing audio and video on separate drives (not recommended for DV) or to provide the necessary storage capacity for your project media.

You should assign your scratch disks to your fastest disk drives. For best performance, avoid using the system hard disk as a scratch disk.
