Oops, I thought you meant my internal drives here.

I have videos not images I can upload. They're pretty big, but I can make them smaller. Depending on space available on a server?

Yup, that's what I'm asking. I can give you some space on my iDisk. You can upload directly to it.

Keep in mind, Murph, when you set up your RAID that first (like everyone else said) try to use identical drives, and second, note that is generally considered a VERY good idea to keep your OS on a separate physical drive from your stripe. So, I would recommend three drives total - and firewire is not generally recommended for RAID. Actually, I wouldn't even try it.

Another suggestion before you setup your stripe is a hardware RAID controller. They're cheap (under $100), and this way, if your entire system drive goes down, you save your precious RAID stripe. Because remember, if you use software RAID and your system crashes or your system drive crashes, you will lose your RAID stripe as well. The same goes, obviously, if you stripe your OS, as well.

Just my two cents.

Anybody else have any good RAID tips?

Great info, thank you! I'm going to get my head wrapped around my new system for a few weeks and then tackle the RAID thing. It looks like I'll do exactly what you said and buy an internal exactly like my current one. Then I'll use Firewire for my system drive.

I've never had my OS on an external drive, so that's weird to me. But, apparently it's common? I'll do it because its the best option...

Thanks again!
