For the purpose of sample-streaming big orchestral libraries in a dedicated DAW, what gives better performance? One huge (1TB) hard drive or say four smaller ones (320GB), with the library divided into sections??? Is one option better than the other ones? (All SATA drives, directly connected to the motherboard)

Thanks.

it's better spread on several drives, so the load is divided on them.
