Running out of hard drive space again... what to do?
3 months ago

Okay, I'm shooting a D800 in RAW and I want to stay that way.  I've filled up 484 GBs of imports (both RAW and jpeg) on a primary drive and this is after I offloaded all images prior to 2011.   I want to keep images current on my PC since I go back occasionally to view pictures or edit.  I have only 5 GB left on this drive and I have to do something fast.  I've thought of getting another internal drive vs. getting a second 3 TB external, have one already that I use for backups.   Also thought of getting a blu-ray disc burner to save off some files that I'm not using and to use for my movies that I've taken over the years that has filled my Mac with files.

This is an easy solution for some, throw some money at it and all will be fine.  I'm seeking opinions here to see what others have done and maybe I'll get the right place before buying anything new.

thanks,  KB

p.s.  My 2 TB internal is also running out of space as well.  Including the boot drive, I have 3.5 TB of internal space available on my PC.
