I've just finished building my new machine and am after a bit of adivce on the hard disk configuration, i've had some feedback from Jim Simon on another post, but wanted to check what the best set-up would be.
The current set-up is as follows:
1 x 500Gb Raid 0 Array - Windows Programs etc
1 x 1Tb Raid 0 Array - Currently empty
1 x 1Tb Raid 0 Array - Also currently blank
I have in total 6 Disks, 4 x 500Gb SATA drives and 2 x 250Gb SATA Drievs, the MB i'm using supports RAID in 0 / 1 / 5 / 0+1 / JBOD
I would put captured material on the second RAID and Projects/Scratch/Preview on the third.
It seems like overkill to have the third RAID0 though. I would be inclined to set up the 5th and 6th disks as separate and put projects/scratch on one, and use the 6th as backup for the 5th. Not as a RAID1 because that would slow things down. Just a separate backup.
