Thanks Jarrod,. i will check them out
completed some interviews yesterday and I've made a mistake on one interview which means the lab didn't pick up the audio to my H5n.. As a backup ive used the deity microphone but wondering how I can clear it up so it doesn't sound to echo and thin?
Thanks everyone for your input, I did not realise my question was so detailed, yet straight forward in parts.
Am I Right here in saying:-
Raid 0 - uses both drives to store all data across both drives on the Lacie 20tb 2 big.. one drive breaks and im knackered? read and write speeds very good
Raid 1 - mirrors one drive so 20tb becomes 2 x 10tb .. one drive breaks and you have another? read speed slower, write speed just as quick as raid 0?
Raid 5 - min 3 drives, 1 is used as copy so you lose 1/3 straight away (with 3 drives).. read speed great, write speed suffers?
raid 6 - min 4 drives, lose 50% but uses striping across all 4 drives so if one or 2 drives falter I still have my data?
read speed great but write speed poor compared o others?
raid 10 - not sure lol
thanks for the detailed response, so raid 1 isn't my best solution, RAID 5 would be better but I need at least 3 equal drives, yes?
thanks, "If it doesn't exist on at least 2 drives then it doesn't exist'... what a great way to look at it, im sure at times I store for the sake of storing... I will look through the forum now
Got a new iMac i9 64gb ram machine coming next week, looking at how I store my data.
Currently ib have about 7 different drives all linked up (besides a couple of Lacie rugged I use out of the office on my mbp)
I was going to buy a Lacie 2big TB3 = usb 20tb drive and use it to store libraries, archives, design elements etc all on the one drive, but not sure if this is the right solution ie should I run a raid 0 (2 x tb drives) and mirror them so I have a copy..
Then a company is offering a virtual server solution whereas I can store and edit from a cloud (has anyone done this??)
Any Idas or suggestions would be great
I didn't think of the 2017 iMac.. I'm assuming you mean i7 then upgrade the RAM from external supplier.
I worry that the new release of iMac will also mean apple no longer allows us to upgrade the ram memory just like the iMac pro
