… but is there an issue with having the scratch file on the same drive as the projects themselves?Regards
A scratch drive does nothing more than take the pressure off the main working drive when processing complex and intensive tasks. As a by-product, you will get a little performance because you are splitting up the workload.
In short, you can have everything on one drive if you want but for a scratch drive setup to really pay dividends, you need to use a different physical drive for it. Not the same drive with a different partition. A drive with multiple partitions still shares the same read head so youre not gaining anything.
