Hi, first of all, please don’t explain how raid works
So I’m a video editor and graphic designer and I’m out of storage… so I bought 2x 8TB IronWolf hard drives and now I’m thinking what to do… The first idea was to config them to RAID1 so I get ‘‘safe’’ drives, so i can keep my long term documentary footage, project files, renders there and time by time work with it - but my question is: after all thous years windows still are not supporting something like dual read? So I don’t get Read Speed benefits?
Second question: My motherboard is Asus Crosshair VI Hero (x370) and I can’t get info about hardware RAID… is it supporting some kind of dual read From RAID 1 setup? or I’m still don’t get any benefits except ‘‘safety’’.
In short, im don’t know what to do with both drives … right now I have 2x2TB external Storage on RAID 0 with important footage on it and I want ASAP to get a copy of it.
I’m here because maybe you have better ideas how to organize all better, any ideas?
2TB - HDD
1TB - HDD
2x2tb - RAID 0
3TB - Archive
(and brand new in packages 8TBx2)
- in the end, I’m interested in ‘‘Safe’’ as possible storage with fast read speeds (for complicated 4k editing projects), don’t care about write speeds…
