Z170-HD3P Gigabyte Motherboard, Intel i5-6600K @ 3.50 w/ 16MB RAM, 1TB SSD "C" drive, win 10 with 700MB free space. All photos on Lacie 2Big Dock Thunderbolt 3. Also installed are a 250 SSD and 125 SSD and I just installed a 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD. Should I move Win 10 and everything to the M.2 SSD or just move LR & PS to that drive for best speed and performance? I have been upgrading and have plenty of options. I just need to configure them all so I can work as efficient as possible. I am addicted to speed I guess...

Thanks for any advice.

What specific drive type is the OS and LR/PS on now?

I'd be inclined to leave that on the current SSD, and use the new 1TB NVMe as working space for your images, etc.
Which is exactly what I did with my system when adding a 1TB Intel 660p to the mix.

So physically move the original photos or current ones I am working on to the new drive? Use the Lacie as a backup storage for photos only?
