I am really getting sick of buying LaCie rugged drives, I have about 10 in a box in my office, and even though they are cheap it takes a lot of time to go and get a new one, unbox, format, copy paste, repeat (maybe I’m just lazy but that’s besides the point). I’m thinking of moving to one of these options:
1. 24 TB Raid setup thinking just 0 or 1
2. 12 TB drive and 12 TB clone
This is for backup purposes only. I usually work off of my 2 TB ssd then do a dual backup. I’m looking into getting 12 TBs of working storage. The extent of my knowledge is that I will lose total space with RAID and you cut it in half with cloning. Would any of you recommend buying 24 TBs of WD blue for raid? Or maybe 24 TBs of WD red? Any recommendations would be appreciated.
