setup Laci3e RAID drive for FCPX
on Dec 8, 2013 at 12:47:01 am

I just added a Lacie 2big 6 TB disk, but not sure how to configure it best. I am thinking RAID 1 rather than RAID 0, for security over raw speed. Out of the box, Disk Utility describes it as Striped RAID set RAID set size 6 TB, RAID Status Online, Number of Slices 2. Not sure how it is configured.

Suggestions?

Thanks
Claude

It's a raid 0. If you want the space cut in half, use Raid 1, which is mirrored. Which means each drive is duplicated. No benefit for editing. I have a drive like that for all the family photos and project archives. But I have a RAID 5 for current projects. Gives you speed and some security. You have to have a minimum of 4 physical drives to set up RAID 5.

If you were looking for mirrored (Raid 1), then you might as well have bought a USB 3 unit. I don't think I'd waste thunderbolt for mirrored.

Thanks:
I will give it a shot at RAID 0 and find a cheap USB to back it up. Unfortunately my mid 2011 27" doesn't support USB3. Apple was a little slow getting around to that.
