I’ve been editing 1080p,2K, now 4K and up videos all on external SSD’s for long. I’m now hitting a point where one single project - all the raw media, exports, renders, effects etc fills up a 2TB Samsung T5 SSD - which is problematic
I’ve been reading and watching some L1 tips on raids - and my takeaways and hopes for a new storage solution are this:
In my mind - I’d like to get (4) NVME M.2 Samsung SSDS - and configure them in an external bay to act as a 4TB SSD Raid - but configure the raid as Raid 0 for speed and daisy chain a backup drive - which would be 4TB HDD and backup the SSD editing drive every 10-30minutes or something.
Maybe the 4TB SSD Raid is possible with those internal drives or maybe I’m missing the obvious - but even still - raid 0 being as risky as it is, my idea to tackle that problem was the daisy chain of an external backup - but I’m not sure if those two would play nice
I’ve mainly seen people talk about using them internally in a PC Build only and at best combining 2 Nvme’s to have 2TB of SSD - but that’s not enough for me as I’ve stated above
Again, I recognize I could be completely wrong in my thinking of this - but combining those SSD’s seemed like the best route rather than HDD Raid Setups (The obvious cheap mas storage solution)
Appreciate any help thank you
