Whether I'm remuxing or encoding I read and write to the same SSD array. I would still just write to the same disk even if I was using a single SSD. Even the Velociraptor has issues handling multiple rips at once. If I was stuck on a HDD for some reason I'd avoid ripping multiple at the same time.
Geez, nearly a TB of flash.
At what point do you offload BD rips to a media server to free up more space on the SSD? Overnight?
I'm out of onboard SATA ports. C: is a 120GB SSD for OS and large and frequently programs, D: a Velociraptor for other programs, both imaged onto E: a third Velociraptor, and then two BD and one DVD. (A Highpoint adapter on a PCI-E 4x is used for 2 x 4 drive RAID arrays.) I suppose I could move D: and E: to another add-in card and and pop a pair of SSDs onto the vacated ports.
