External Harddrive advice
on Feb 3, 2010 at 1:16:34 am

HI,

We're gearing up for a feature shoot in 4 weeks using the Red and are about to buy back up hard drives for the on on set data transfer and backup. These will also be the drives we use for post.


I'm currently using Acomdata 2T quad drives at home and they seem to be working nicely (though kinda loud). Any other recommendations for good reliable drives for an independent Red shoot?

Thanks,
Rachel

The CalDigit drives have been working wonderfully for my clients.

[Rachel Pearl] "These will also be the drives we use for post. "

If you are using them in post they are not backup drives (unless you mean matching sets) But with all data media you want separate HDs for you raw files.

For date it is recommended that you put the data on 2 separate drives. This way they can be physically in to places. This is the cheapest put of the production. A program like Shotput Pro can write to the 2 drives at the same time.

Thanks!

We plan to back up all the data on set to at least 2 identical drives with R3D data manager or shotput, and then probably before post put it all on another drive to cut with so we have it in 3 places.

Any good recommendations for drives? I heard CALDigit (thanks Stuart!). Any other votes?

Also, we are looking into a digital slate. What are the benefits of paying for this added feature?

I would also recommend talking to my friends at Maxx Digital. Talk to John West or Ron Amborm. They are very helpful and knowledgeable. I am sure they can direct you exactly to what you need.
