I am just wanting some advice on whether or not the RAID system I'm thinking of using will be sufficient for my needs as im not great with technical stuff! Each year i edit a tv program that requires around 4T of storage for media and we need to upgrade our system.
We have a 2015 Mac Book Pro (2 Thunderbolt + USB 3 ports) and was looking into getting the WD My Book Pro 12T system configured as RAID 1 (so i will have a mirrored - kind of backup!) aswell as getting another 4T External drive to back up everything onto via Time Machine as a "just in case the WD drives both fail" backup!
RAID 5 and 6 systems would be great but unfortunately the budget won't stretch quite that far at the moment. Given that we only ever utilise 3 - 4T of space for the entire show over the season would the above system be ok?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
Thanks for your response. Ill look into the OWC Raids. Ive got probably about $1500 - $2000 Australian dollars to work with so that should be a good option and then i can have Raid 5 also - and thanks for not being rude in your response.
