# SSD Scratch Disk

Can Blender make use of a scratch disc?

Use of a separate SSD as scratch disc in photoshop is new information to me. Can Blender also make use of such a setup?

Just go to File > User Preferences > File and set new paths on the SSD for things like "Temp" and "Render Output".
• Unfortunately, I wasn't able to look up a way to do that. However, if you haven't already, check whether you have room to increase the Memory Cache Limit setting under File > User Preferences > System > Sequencer / Clip Editor. I'm not sure how the default for that is calculated and it could be too conservative. – ssokolow Nov 25 '17 at 4:47
