    Partition or Single Drive?

    Hi, as we scramble to try and keep working we are buying HDs to work offsite.  It is faster/better to partition out a 50 GIG drive to match our Nexis 10 partitions all random sizes?  Or would it be better jsut to run it as a 50 Gig drive with 1 Partition and 1 MXF Folder and just change all the names of the folders inside?  Or is there a way to have Multiple Avid MediaFiles Folders or MXF OMF Folders on the same partition?

    Thankk!

    Seperate partions are going to be more robust for sure. Get a crash or similar and you may (unlikley) lose one partition.

    That said the risk is relatively low.

    No one step but you can drag each MXF folders database file into a new bin to get a list of all the clips in that folder and then batch background transcode them to a different partition.

    But note the newly created dnx36 files will have the project name emebedd of the project name used to create them. If you use project names in media tool to manage media this needs to be considered.

    Not sure, if the drive fails physically, you'll loose all partitions. [:'(]
