Apologies that this has been asked in the past, but hardware progression is very fast.
I am building a new PC for use as a Wedding Video editing machine and some photo editing, no gaming!! Current system is a laptop with some external hard drives, so HDD setup on new machine will differ significantly.
I am proposing the following setup:
M.2 - 256GB OS, Programs, Pagefile, Skratch
HDD – 2TB Projects Files, Everyday Files, Exported Video
RAID0 – 4TB Current Media, proxies, preview files, render files
External RAID1 - 2TB Backup of all current media, Any media pending edit
Online Storage – 1TB Backup of 2TB HDD. (Project, Everyday, Exported), Backup of any media pending Edit
Archive Drives All finished projects, finished media
