Should teh Lightroom cache and video cache be stored on

Drive C: (along with OS, Programs and pagefile); or
Drive D: (along with Lightroom catalogue and previews); or
Drive E: (along with the RAW photos and videos).

All three are large 7200 RPM drives.

As long as the drives are not dead slow, I don't think it will make a noticeable difference in performance.

It's probably more important to put the catalogue on a separate drive from the rest. But, overall, you aren't going to see much difference if you don't.
