Okay, so I put my new drives in today I now have 4 drives total one is a couple of years old.
1 brand new 1 tb
1 brand new 500 gb
1 2 year old 500 gb
and 1 green TB about 1 year old. Thats what I had before I knew I wasn't supposed to be using green ones!!
I have a quad core processor with 4 gb of ram
If it were you guys, how would you set it up?
I guess what Im mostly concerned with is the green drive and if I should put anything on it. What I thought I would do is
use it for overflow of video from the other TB drive.
Heres what I do. I video tape stock car races every weekend. To this point in the season I have all the weeks saved on the TB drive, but
its almost full, so I thought Id put the last few weeks on the green drive. When the season is over I will be deleting all of my video and starting over again next year in the spring.
I am praying that after I get it set up this time I won't have to do this for a long time.
If your interest in seeing any of the video I have a couple on youtube, just search shantyhillproduction
my daughter was the winner of the young guns race and my son was right along side.
Use a 500 GB for System (OS and programs, nothing else)
Use a 500 GB for Projects/Scratch
Use the new 1 TB for Media
Use the old TB for Exports
150 GB is more than enough for OS.
And don't use Green, use the regular HDD's.
I second that, Jim.
thank you all
