[Robert Houllahan] "Do you have a eSata enclosure now?"

I have 2 copies of the film's DPX files (24TB total) on Western Digital 1.5TB internal drives and used a eSATA dock: Voyager Q Quad Interface.

I have to be very careful with them, but so far it has worked very well and it saved a lot of money at a time when I was spending a lot on scanning.

I'm also starting to look into the more expensive setup you recommended 6 months ago - if it's possible to put together a scaled down version.

The ATTO R680 sounds reliable. I only have 1 free PCI slot though (after I remove the eSATA card) so I can't use a multiplier. Do I need a multiplier with the R680? By the way... what exactly does a multiplier do? :)

Would something like this be possible?

R680 $1000.00
8 Disk Enclosure $500.00
4 2TB drives $800.00 (to start)

Thanks again for your help!
