Im having a horrible time trying to figure out a good storage and backup system for my files. Im a wedding photographer so I have a lot of images in a Lightroom catalog. Currently I have two 1.5tb drives in an internal stripped set that has all of my images on it. Its currently at about 65% full. I also have my DVDs all an internal 1tb drive that is 80% full. My system drive is a 500gb drive that has about 150gb on it. I use two external 1tb drives for backing up the RAID0. One is used for TM and backs up my working images folder as well as my Documents folder and the other one is used for CCC and backs up the rest of the images. I also have a clone of my boot drive. This seems like a haphazard setup and one that I would like to optimize. Here are my thoughts and I would love to have input from others. I like the speed of the stripped set for Lightroom so I would like to keep that. I would also like to have offsite backup as well as an easy (as possible) way to recover from drive failures while protecting in process work. I was looking into the OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro Qx2 to use in spanning mode for TM. I would be able to fill it with the few unused drives that I have on the shelf and get about 3.5tb of storage on it. I could then set TM to backup everything on the machine except the movies since I have the DVDs as the backup for that. I would still have my clone of the boot disk and can keep that offsite. I can also use my webhost server (offsite) to backup my documents using rsync. For offsite image backup, I would buy a 2tb external drive and set it up at a friends house to backup the RAID0 using CrashPlan software. How does this sound? Im open to all ideas for improvement!
