G'Day all who read this post, i hope you all had a great Christmas.
The short version: should i partition my drive? Do i need a 64 bit system?
The Long version:
I have been using Sony Vegas for about a year now, i just completed a video and tried to render it, the warning i recieved was insufficient memory, i even tried to render it in 10sec intervals to no avail.
This is where i got unstuck, i rang my brother for advice, he said that i needed to un partition my drive so i could use all the hard drive to render with, so he did that for me, then he said (as he handed it back) by the way, any information you had on the partitioned bit is now gone forever. Needlesss to say i now have absolutely no video to render now. and now it will not s, tart up even angrier.
So to move on i am starting again,this time however i am asking for some good advice first, on set up of drives and the hardware i am running
1. should i have a partitioned drive? to help-- the computer will only be used to edit video and surf the net, possible the odd job application no gaming ever gets played on the computer.
2. i have windows 7, 32 bit edition, should i go 64 bit. I want to but will i get gains from my set up?
My hardware is:
-AMD Quad Core Processor
-Gigabyte motherboard Dual Bios
-Gainward Ge Force GTX 550ti Graphics Card
-2x4gb ram plus 2x2gb ram total 12 Gig of Ram
-120G hard drive and a separate 80 g hard drive
-Total of 2 tb storage external. one is portable one is permanently plugged in.
Not having a lot of money to put into the computer at this time of year, what should i improve?
I am handing the computer to a friend, He does know what he is doing so he will be able to get my computer working again, however i want to be able to tell him what set up to use.
Back to my first question, should i run a partitioned drive? i can only install Vegas onto the operating drive, i tried to store it onto the 1 TB storage system but it would not let me...
Thanks for reading my ramble, and thanks in advance to all of you that try to help me.
My videos are always entitled EIGIP it means Everything Is Good In Progression...
TI think this suits this situation also.
