120GB drive connected to my AirPort Extreme that was lying around. I use it to transfer files to/from my guest network.

My early 2009 mini with SL seems to have problems with more than 2 FireWire drives connected at the same time, so I'm trying out the Time Machine disk as USB only to see if this stabilizes my setup.

a 0.5 and 1.0 LaCie and a 2TB Acomdata which sounds like a !@#%$ F-15 taking off... but on all the time... I have no idea why they think it is silent... I can hear it across the room... but I love it.

I've grown tired of plugging in HDs to my Macbook Pro all the time, so i made a fileserver where I hooked up my external HDs. Now I can access it from wireless too and when i'm not home :D
Speed via 1Gbit ethernet is kinda good for backup too.

The fact it's in my closet makes my desk a lot cleaner :D

The machine is a Dell Optiplex SX260 and the HDs are a LaCie NP 500GB and a Seagate FreeAgent 1GB. Too bad the SX260 only can hold ATA 2.5" HD, so i can't really put in much storage there.

I also have a LaCie D2 on my desk when I need a HD directly connected for video editing and such.

not really, ideally you'd want a tower unit rather then traditional desktop, at least sata2 disk connectors, and more the better, have it set up to access your network, via wireless or wired ( better ) and leave it running, set up sharing and access and it should work a treat, you can add HDD's as and when you need

I have Western Digital My Book Essential (1 TB), which is almost full as you can see by the capacity gauge.
The other one (my older ext. drive) is WD drive as well but with full aluminum enclosure and has additional e-sata port.
It's an empty drive (320 GB free) and will start its duty (again) once the My Book drive capacity is full.

It not expensive at all!
The optiplex is an old P4 i got for free from work and it only has 768 mb ram.
Other than that you only need a TP cable :D

To make it a server there are several approaches.
Easiest way (but also most unreliable) is to run Windows and enable filesharing and connect via samba.
There is also loads of flavours of linux that does the job better, but requires a lil'bit more effort

Another in the DIY NAS/server camp. My 2nd is now stashed neatly away in the top shelf of my home office closet. Just needs an ethernet cable. 5TB and counting (still room for 2 more SATA hard drives.). Running ClearOS (formerly clarkconnect Linux)- and for the record it's much easier than Windows to set up. Distros like ClearOS are pretty point and click and take maybe about 10-15 minutes to install and setup. A complete noob can do it.

(And sorry, FreeNAS isn't an option for me- compared to Linux it's like moving files in slow motion.)

http://www.wareview.com/images/externals.jpg
I have a whole slew of external hard drives, but in this day and age externals seem overly redundant, so there's not much I use them for other than redundant backup.

For the few files that I can't access across the network/internet from my servers, or are too big for a 32GB flash drive, I may occasionally use an external to transfer.

I used to use Nullriver media link. It worked great streaming from my old imac. But I now use a macbook pro (latest one) and it does not stream well. I cant fast forward or rewind like i could when streaming from my imac. So I stopped using it.

Here's my external storage shelf:

http://i40.tinypic.com/2dvuanq.jpg

1.5 TB Western Digital Elements - Design backup and media (for plex) (700GB used)
1.5 TB Western Digital Elements - Time Machine (300 GB used)
320 GB Western Digital - Second backup of work and photos (70GB used)

Backup is really important for me, so I have offsite backups of my work on DVD at my parents, and a copy on each hard drive here + internal (and time machine). Would like to get a backup of all my media though, so will probably buy another when I get more money and would like to make a bootable backup, but think I need a firewire capable HD for that? And maybe a small offsite HD.

the dual-bay is OWC and the fan is relatively low noise, where i have it its not audible (with all the drives on there is a slight low ambient audible noise but nothing that is extremely loud).

So far im liking the dual-bay enclosure. I just picked it up a few days ago on their clearance section. so not a bad deal.

tell me about it, its the only drive out of the bunch that has any logos and writing :rolleyes:

I'd recommend any of them but the WD if it does infact have green drives in any form of RAID, just because the green drives power off intermittently to save power and RAID confuses that with the drives falling offline and essentially throws up errors to rebuild the RAID. (as most current gen WD Green drives lack TLER).

The main unit is an HP EX490 storage server with 2 x 1.5TB WD15EADS and 2 x WD20EARS drives, and the CPU upgraded to an Intel E6300 2.8GHz dual core. This machine runs an iTunes client to serve up around 1TB of media to an AppleTV, hosts two Time Machine backups, one for for each of my Macs, hosts a backup of my photo library plus backups of other files. The external drive dock is connected via eSATA to the HP server and I use it to back up the storage server to bare drives that are stored elsewhere. The big external is a LaCie 2Big triple configured as 1TB of RAID 1, and it hosts a bootable clone of my Mac Pro's primary drive. The small external is a Seagate 320GB 7200rpm drive in a bus-powered FW800 Rosewill enclosure that hosts a bootable clone of my MBP's drive.

Update:

I replaced the EX490 with a Synology DS411 last Fall. I am still using the eSATA drive dock for server backups in conjunction with several WD green drives: a 2.5TB and 2 1.5TB drives. I stuck the 320GB 2.5" drive into a USB 3.0 enclosure from OWC for use with my new MBA.

All drives are attached to my Mac Mini.

500GB Seagate Freeagent - 2 partitions, 120GB for network clone of my MBP SSD, and 380GB for network clone of the MBP HDD.

2TB WD MyBook Essential - 1st is my media drive holding movies and tv shows for Plex server and my aperture photo vault. 2nd is a direct clone of the 1st.

2TB WD MyBook World Edition NAS - Setup as Raid 1 (1TB x2) and used as network Time Machine backup for my MBP.

1TB WD Element - Time machine backup for Mac Mini.

Also have a 120GB external drive enclosure that holds the original drive from my MBP. Don't currently have a drive to clone the Mac Mini to but the TM backups are enough for now I think. My MBP is my main computer so a quick recovery from any potential problems is more important for that machine, especially with my graduate studies program starting this September.

Thunderbolt is awesome! :D


I also backup online using CrashPlan -- currently backing up only 1.2TB of the critical stuff.

My external drive enclosure died so I pulled the drive out of it and put it in a 3-in-2 drive bay for my PC. I currently have no external backup, just mirroring from drive 2 to drive 3: :eek:

Drive 1 is an SSD, 2 and 3 are both 2TB drives. Getting kinda full, and I do need to get another backup going. Everything is connected to a UPS but that's no excuse. Been contemplating building a home server but want to do some form of off-site backup as well.

External storage:

1. Lacie 2big USB 3.0. Found a used one ebay for cheap and ripped out the cheap 1tb drives.. Dropped in a couple 2tb WD blacks that was from last years PC project. Insanely fast and no problems.
2. Lacie 1tb little big disk Thunderbolt. Fast but not as fast the USB 3.0 and WD drives.
3. Corsair 32gb USB 3.0 thumb drive
4. Thermaltake BlacX duet USB 3.0. Nice but only used to make sure I have redundant backups of data.
