I’m working on a film. Right now, there’s about 15 TB of data spread out over two different10 tb drives. I’m currently editing it on a late 2016 MBP using two standalone drives that are in an OWC drive dock (this one to be specific: https://tinyurl.com/h95perjx). I am wondering if it would be quicker if I went to RAID 0?
I’m not doing too much in the way of graphics or effects with this material. Right now, the two drives is fine speed wise, but if RAID 0 was going to make a real discirnible difference than I’d consider it since I’ll be working on this for another 4-5 months.
I could be wrong but I don’t think you’ll notice the difference with a RAID 0 using that particular OWC device on your MBP. If you do decide to RAID the drives, be sure to have a backup. On a RAID 0 volume, if any of the drives fail, your data is lost and gone forever.
