How often do you wipe you drive clean and start fresh?
rarely if not never lol the HD fails before I get around to it..
Only if I have showing stopping problems that I can't fix any other way (which hasn't happened yet).
Who's got time?
Or twice the storage they need?
Never, occasionally i have to clear it out
I was curious once to see if wiping my drive would improve performance, it really doesn't do much. I also tried Jaguar because I had a copy laying around.
Other than those times, I never feel a need to wipe my system drive.
Never tend to wipe my drives as such. I don't tend to edit from my main System Drive though, and use a different internal HDD to edit on instead. I then back everything up once finished to an external drive, and delete the project from the internal one.
When you have a good 4TB of RAID that is nearly full, you never get the chance to erase it
Really. I mean, like where would you put that much stuff to wipe it clean...
I just keep buying bigger drives. I'm up to the 500GB LaCie d2.
It seems that every time I have bought a new drive the price point has been the same for twice as much space.
After every project...
To add to this at school we wipe every year to clear out all of our newscasts...
I did it once in 4 years of editing DV footage
I have 1.5 TB internal.. I have 500GB partioned for the BIG $$$ projects (backed up on external HD)..
All other projects get there own External HD via FIREWIRE.... I rarely use less than 500GB External Drives per project.
