  • At that point, from a cabling perspective, there is not really a need for a NAS for me.   I would be no better off than buying a standard external USB3 drive.  Since my wireless router is on my ...
  • Thanks, Tom.  That's helpful. I'll be importing onto the internal iMac SSD and doing my editing there.  So the drive won't be slowing down the import or initial editing.  I imagine the limiting ...
  • I'm not very familiar with NAS.  My ethernet connection and router are located in the same room as my computer, so hooking up a NAS via ethernet connection would create more cable mess.  Are there ...
  • My main photo library resides on a WD Passport 2TB Ultra USB3 drive. I back this up to the docking station drive via my macbook pro. Works perfectly! :) Tom Do you find the WD drive to be fast?  I ...
  • Sorry to crash the party here, but this is a somewhat related question that perhaps would help the OP also. One of the problems with two separate external drives is that you then have two AC power ...
  • This is a really good point.  I was at Best Buy today looking at a 5TB My Book Western Digital Drive.  It was very inexpensive compared to some others I have seen.  It seems, however, that they ...
  • Thanks for the information and congrats on the new computer.  Mine should be arriving next week - it is still in "processing" which allows me to continue to wonder whether I should make any ...
  • Which docking device are you using?
  • Haha.  Sorry, I thought that was a more broadly known reference.  It's the (sometimes large) transformer at the end of the AC power cord that plugs into the wall (or UPS).
  • That makes sense.  The reason I asked is that I am going to be using it with an iMac and it won't be moving.  You pay a little more for portability and you can buy a larger drive if it is a ...
  • Thanks.  Are you using it with a macbook of some sort or an iMac?
  • The last iMac I purchased was a refurb that was a year old and was close to maxed out for that year. I got it at a good price and I suspect had I bought the then current model I would have been ...
  • Yes, you are right about the powered drives being less expensive.  Maybe I'm thinking a bit foolishly, but the portable drives tend to be quieter as well as "neater."   I feel like I have too many ...
  • No, I actually meant USB power.  My thought was to use a Desktop external drive that connects via USB 3 but is powered by an AC power adapter for my external storage of images, music etc., but ...
  • Thanks.  That's helpful.  I too am very noise sensitive.
  • Yes, you are right.  A 3TB or 4TB drive should be more than adequate for now.  I currently have a 2TB internal drive that is less than half full, including my apps that will be going on the ...
  • Thanks again.  Better a little paranoid than sorry, I suppose 😀
  • Thanks for the response.  Yes, I understand.  I was asking in the context of external storage, separate and apart from backup of that drive and the internal drive.  It sounds, however, like you ...
  • I had looked at those also.  Raid 0?   Is it quiet?
  • Created discussion thread External storage for images, etc.
    I have ordered a new iMac with an internal 512GB SSD. My apps, Lightroom catalog and current editing and other projects, etc. will go on the internal drive, but I will need external storage and a ...
