Re: How many D800e RAW files will fit on a 1TB external hard drive?

ok. thnx for the responses.

i think i understand the difference between back-up and storage.

Apple has Time Capsule. (i haven't even used Apple's Time Machine either.)

do i need them?

i don't use any system right now to back up my laptop at all.

it would be best to use a large Thunderbolt storage device. i don't hv USB 3,

and then have my image/video archive copied to another device and stored in my locker room (away from my Apt.).

?

i'm an artist that works in photo and video.

my Mac has Thunderbolt.

i'm looking for a Thunderbolt enabled external HD,

but i'm not sure how much storage i need,

or do i need a raid?

i already own a 1TB G-Tech external HD,

and a 500MB G-Tech portable HD.

i don't keep my photos or videos on my computer.
