This was probably the most important part of my recent post:
"Make sure that:
Your record drive is separate from your boot drive. Your record drive should
also be internal: IDE or SATA and preferably connected directly to the
Recording to your "C" drive (or boot drive)from a DAW is not recommended on any
platform because the OS has to read from & update the software from the same
drive it is recording to. The result can be lost data in the recording, system
crashes or worse, damage to your OS rendering everything unrecoverable.
