How Do You Store Your Digital Archives?

Recommended Posts

Ann, thank you for the detailed response.

 

I will never achieve your level of efficiency and expertise, but even at 200 per hour, 13,000 images equate to 65 hours.

 

I think the real message for me is to limit my independent refinements to the 5 star images, just as you do.  At the moment, I try to refine each keeper, which is just too many to deal with.

 

As I will never achieve your speed of operation, I will stick with the raw + jpeg fine plan for the time being, so that when there are images worth individual attention I will have the time available to deal with them properly.

It would be sad to run out of images to process, no chance of that fortunately!

At Christmas the wife and I both moved from MacBooks to a combo of iPad Pro plus iMac.   Now I am wrapping up that move by hooking up new DAS.   We each had LaCie 2Big 6TB that have 2 Seagate 3TB configured into RAID 0 of 6TB.   We also had a LaCie d2 6TB with a single Seagate drive for Time Machine backups.

 

The new config for each of us is WD My Book Duo 8TB with 2 WD Red drives configured in RAID 0.   The new TM backup drive is a WD My Book 8TB.  The new RAID set gives read/write speeds in the 330+ range while the LaCie RAID was in the 220 range.   The Duo box connects to the iMac with a USB-C cable running USB 3.1 gen1 (5Gbps).  The My Book hooks to the one of the two USB 3 ports on the back of the Duo.  So only one iMac port needed for both enclosures.

 

We are not taking the next step which would be cloud backups or a backup copy offsite.
