Hi, looking for some advice from people who have a similar issue as I do. I have an increasing home movie collection thanks to my 8 month old son as well as a pretty large iphoto collection. I'm running a 17' iMac with 500GB drive which is now nearing full capacity. - My AVCHD videos are currently in iMovie, backed up in .mts format on an external Drobo FS. On an import last night i've hit capacity on my Mac Hard drive. - My iPhone library is currently in iPhoto, backed up via Time Machine also to the Drobo. - My Films and TV shows are stored directly on the Drobo and accessed via Plex media player installed on the Mac and watched on the TV's around the house, works very well. I have plenty of space on the Drobo and have previously looked at putting the iPhoto and iMovie libraries on the Drobo but the time to access the applications when you boot up and try to edit is far too slow so I abandoned that. In hindsight it may have been a mistake buying the Drobo FS, however this is what I have at the moment. I'd like to hear from others how they currently cope with keeping the storage on their Mac workable, while having the larger storage files (Photos, Videos, Music) stored externally and accessible through the Apple suite or other apps like Final Cut pro etc, with good performance. Appreciate any advice.
