Plotting to different drives at same time

Hi, newbie here

I currently have 3 plots running in parallel (1 TB M.2. drive) to store on a 16TB drive.

I have a separate 1TB SSD.

My question is whether I can set up a different plot on my 1TB SSD while the other plots are running on the M.2 drive? I think my CPU can handle it I just don’t want to try to start another plot & it be assigned to my M.2. drive where I will run out of space & all the plots fail!

Hope question makes sense

Thanks for any thoughts

You can of course specify the temp directory for your plots:

chia plots create -k 32 -b 4000 -t /path/to/temporary/directory -d /path/to/final/directory

-t argument specifies the temp location so if you choose somewhere in the empty drive you should be fine.

If you’re using GUI similarly just pick the empty drive.

Maybe I’m misunderstanding your question as it seems too obvious.

Feel free to elaborate if I misunderstood.

Thanks - yes that was the essence of the question

I tried to set up a separate plot to another drive before but suspect I got the command wrong & so all plots went to the same temporary drive & exceeded its capacity!
