I've just received my Mac Pro and am trying to work out the best way to manage my storage from my previous Mac Pro (4 drives formally housed inside the previous gen Mac Pro) to this new setup. I was thinking of purchasing a small capacity (2-3TB) Thunderbolt-ready external drive exclusively for my work. I'd prefer one that doesn't require a power source and one that's pretty quick (hence the Thunderbolt requirement). Apart from the Lacie ones, are they any others that anyone would recommend? Generally my work will be stored on this drive and I hope to keep a backup of this drive on a Time Capsule using Time Machine. I also have three other HDDs filled with media (movies, tv shows, music) that I'd like to put inside an enclosure to sit besides a Mac Mini underneath my television. I use this Mac Mini exclusively for Plex and streaming media to my TV. Could anyone help explain what sort of enclosure I would need? NAS or DAS? And the benefits of both? I wanted to keep the Mac Mini and this enclosure always-on so its constantly awake whenever I need to stream media. I also wouldn't mind if I could use this Mac Mini to run Sick Beard and Couch Potato, apps that I previously ran on the Mac Pro. I've put together a little illustration of how I envision it. The question is, will this work for what I want to do? Any help or tips are appreciated from people with a similar setup. Thanks in advance!
