I need to have a safe way of backing up my media drives. I don’t want to remove the media from my main RAID0 set up only have a copy of it in case I have a drive die on me. The RAID0 has five 1.5TB drives in it. I purchased three 2TB drives that I can use for a backup system. I’m not sure if a software solution is good or a different RAID setup would be best. I dont want to replace my five bay MacGurus SATA Drive Enclosure with Port Multiplier since its been working very well for me. Do I need to get another one? Looking for some input.
I will look at tape. I have a feeling its going to be pricey, My main goal is to at least have a backup of some kind in case my RAID has a problem. I capture HDV as Prores during ingest so recapturing isn’t possible. That is one big down side to this method. However working with ProRes is so much better. I need to think of it like P2 or solid state media. Maybe I should search around for what folks that use these types of media do to back up and use that method.
