Saving footage collection
on Feb 4, 2011 at 8:19:03 pm

Hi there,
I would like an advise based on the experience of you guys.
I always say that when "you have 2, in fact you have 1 and if you have 1 you definitely have nothing" . That is a good rule for making backups on HD.
I have been collecting footage for some years and sometimes I use them on my projects and they are saved and organized in a external HD (with no mirror or raid) different from my scratch disk, which is an array with 4 HDs setup as a raid 5.
What is the best ? Save the collection on the scratch disk or leave it where it is and make regular backups ?

MacBook Pro 17"
2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
(2) External HD LaCieMac (400/800 FW and USB)with 500GB -(2) USB External HD Western Digital (in cases) with 750GB
OS X 10.6.5
Final Cut Studio "3"

Everyone everywhere will say the same thing "A Raid is not a backup." Back it up. Twice. Pick different hard drive manufacturers. And if you could store one offsite, better yet.

Best,
