Tommy -
you need a big RAID array. End of story. There are countless companies that advertise right here on Creative Cow, that offer the exact drive array that you need, that will work wonderfully with your Mac Pro. so you can get 8TB, 16 TB, 32 TB, 64 TB, 96 TB, and these can be expandable systems. The only thing on your 1TB boot drive should be your software programs. If you want an SSD (I am assuming that this is an older Mac Pro from before 2012) - get an Other World Computing Mount Pro ($19 dollars) which is a sled for your Mac Pro, and a 480 Gig SSD, and just use that for your software programs. Keep all your media on a big external drive array. There are SO MANY COMPANIES that sell these, and they are bombarding you RIGHT NOW on the banner ads in these Cow forums. Crack open that wallet, and get rid of your aggravation.
