I've recently gotten into photography and now have a largish data problem. I also have never really had much on my home pc that I would cry over if I lost so don't have a good backup plan in place.
My current idea is to put 2 1TB drives in my PC and have them set up in a raid 1 configuration and then backup to a external usb drive once a week and keep that at my work office.
Can Vista to the raid 1 for me if I put in 2 sata drives?
What about other solutions? Would a NAS be fast enough for photo editing? How about something like a drobo? I like the idea of raid 1 because if something totally fails I can just drop it in another machine. But then if I have the backups I can use that and rely on the raid for drive failures on my primary machine.
I don't really want to hit the bleeding edge of storage space, rather get enough for a year out and wait for prices\size to get better. 1TB should cover me for another year or so unless I start taking way more pics.
