ext drive recommendations? RAID?
on May 30, 2012 at 5:29:15 pm

Hi, looking for some recommendations on drives. I've been working on a paying project and I'm a little paranoid about backing up the footage, which was shot on a dslr. I've got all of my footage on two 2G drives right now, but would like to back them up onto a third drive. Anyone have any recommendations on what kind of drive I need? Or what I should be looking for?

I've been reading about these RAID drives and just beginning to understand them. Both of my current 2G drives are by LaCie (the orange ones).

Overall, I'm looking for something that works well with media (video, audio, photos).

thoughts?

thanks

I believe what you have (and I'm guessing) are 2 - 2TB Lacie rugged 3.5" hard drives that you are looking to archive, correct? What kind of host machine are you hooked up to & what I/O, (interface) are you using? Are you looking to back up 4TB of data onto something else that you're then archiving?

Hi, yeah sorry i've got two 1TB 'rugged' drives that I use for video production shoots. I usually keep one at home and take one on shoots, but they are both filling up at this point. I'm looking to get another drive where I can archive all of my raw video files as backup just on case any of these LaCie drives ever crap out on me.

I mostly work off of my macbook.

Looking to see if anyone has any recommendations on what memory drives work best for media and suggestions/insight on backing up video files.

Until now, I've never has to worry about this, but I've recently been taking on bigger projects that pay, so I don't want to loose any footage.

thanks
