Hey guys,
I have a Seagate 160GB SATA2 drive[C:], a Seagate 250gb SATA2 drive [D:] and a Western Digital 40gb SATA1 drive [E:].
Mediaportal runs off C:, but records everything to the 250gb including timeshift. The 40gb is completely unused.
Now, would there be any advantage/disadvantages to moving the timeshift to the 40gb? It would be serving perhaps 1 client, max of 2 (not including local mediaportal app). If i was recording something to the 250gb, watching another channel on a client and then also watching another channel (on the same mux), as an example.
All video is h264, most channels are 576i but the main channels are 720p and 1080i. Not sure if this will affect anything.

Lastly, would it be a good idea to alter where page file should be located?
