seagate
2 x 1TB drives.

I’ve run out of space on my laptop, mainly because I’ve got a lot of heavy video/audio files AND raw photos on top of that. I’ve had to buy another drive, but I’m so behind on tech shit, if anyone can suggest a better way for me to back stuff up I’d really appreciate it!

    Cloud baby, cloud. Gonna cost you monthly or yearly for the kind of data you have, but probably worth it from a redundancy point of view.

    Your photog buddies might have a better suggestion.

      Man I looked at NAS options. $1k at least. I SO can’t afford that FFS!!!

        Was going to mention a NAS box after but I forgot. This is what I meant for cloud:

        You would have to go paid for 1Tb+ though.

        Looks like you won’t get a NAS box with drives for under $1k. RAID 5 FTW though you could go RAID1 for cheap (I don’t really know shit about RAID, there’s probably something better by now).

        Honestly, if the cloud storage price isn’t unreasonable (and the vendor is established i.e. Microsoft, Google, Apple, Dropbox etc) I’d be inclined to go that way. Dump the files and let them worry about the backup.

        Never take advice from random strangers on the internet though :)

    If money isn’t an option, I’d suggest a FreeNAS build & some WD red hard drives (you should be able to do it for under $1k):

    At least with this type of setup you will have some redundancy if anything were to fail.

    Unfortunately, storing data is never cheap! but if you were to go the NAS route, at least all your storage would be consolidated in one spot, with some room to grow :D
