Christoph... you're a genius.

I've dealing the same way but instead i'm using those populars sata-to-usb adapters.

But this is everything i ever dreamed since day one, when i decided to go the hdd route.


Thank you so much for sharing.

I also have four HDs in my MacPro - the System is on 1x500G and then 3x1TBs. But I left the three 1TB HDs as seperate drives that can be swopped out easily thanks to the MacPro's fast 'slide-in' sata storage. I can easily add larger drives - 2Tb when required. There is little speed advantage using Apple's software raid on internal HDs and you run the risk of a drive failure bringing it all down.
Instead I installed a RocketRaid card and an external Raid enclosure of 4x1TBs. This cost less than $1,000 inc. drives/card/enclosure. This is Raid 5. It is just fast enough for HD editing. This is the cheapest solution I found for an external raid set up.
So I have 3TB for source files which get swopped out when a job is complete, and a 4TB scratch disk raid for editing. I use sata hot-swop docking for backing up to 1TB HDs and also spinning the HD's at least once per month to keep them active. Do not let HDs sit on your shelf or they will fail eventually.

One of the pics in your blog showed the drives in a drawer, some of them looking to be enclosed individually in plastic housings? If that is the case, where are you getting those housings and what are they called? I would really like some of those.
