Faster and Safer Videoediting harddrive setup
Posted on 2016-10-26
Hello, i try to make my process of videoediting faster and Safer. And i think my current System is'nt eficcient and fast enough:
In Studio: (PC internal Drives)
4x 3tb Hdds, projects finished and in Produktion and other Data, everyday everything gets copied like in Raid 1 ( Drive 1 to Drive 2, Drive 3 to Drive 4)
On the Road (Laptop)
2x 2tb external Hdds (2,5"), Backup everyday like Raid 1
My Motherboard has only five sata ports, and only one sata 6gb/s (the System ssd) and No Raid build in.
My Problem is, that it isn't fast enough, efficient and Not safe enough.
So i tought of those Solutions:
1. Buy a Raid (5) enclosure or Card for the 4 Drives.
+ more space
-no protection against viruses
-potential Raid Controller failure
- not potable for on the road
2. Buy a Ssd with like one terabite space as editing Drive, with usb 3.1 enclosure for in Studio and on the road. Backing up on a slower external hdd. Use the 4x 3tb hdds in a Like 5 bay non Raid (or Raid?) enclosure as mainly backup of finished projects which get deleted from the ssd. Backup on those like before the changes and taking out one hdd of the pairs, after copiying New finished projects. New Pair of 2 Terabyte Hdds added in the Computer for other Data than Video projects. (Backed up Daily like Raid 1)
+faster editing storage
+Protection against viruses on finished project
+portable of editing drive
-1tb editing storage is for 4k not huge
What do you think about those Solutions? And do you have any recommandations for backup software for windows?
