[Andrew Johnstone] "I appreciate tat there are downsides to this workflow, a mirrored raid is not as fast as a single RAID and there is also the danger of drive failure from overuse. "
Actually, a mirrored RAID 1 is slower than a single hard drive. I would suggest you use a RAID 5 at a minimum or even no RAID at all would be faster than a RAID 1 although without redundancy.
[Andrew Johnstone] "Problem: Now, not only do I have a back up of the original rushes on my mirrored RAID, I also have a duplicate of all the material in the film's 'library'."
This is actually an opportunity to reorganize how you work. I avoid this problem because all of my camera card media is on a separate portable drive from my projects. I ingest media to a camera card drive. Then when I'm ready to start editing, I transfer from that drive to my projects drive by importing into the Library. This gives me a back of up original media on a separate drive in case of project drive failure (because there are no more "tapes" to go back to!). 😉
