[proecad] - TR: Best use of SSD hard disk for ProE and Mechanica

I now run Mechanica on a RAM disk (24 GB machine; Pro/M WF4 can only use 8 GB). There are definitely speed increases both from putting the temporary files on a fast 'disk', and from putting the results there. For large analyses, the results are written non-sequentially across maybe 12 files so you could see a big improvement from writing them to an SSD.

I don't know what the cost is likely to be in terms of 'using up' disk write cycles... but the best thing is probably for you to experiment using your typical analyses, looking at all three combinations of temp files, results, and both on the SSD.

Let us know what you find!
