Re: What storage for and how to work with 4TB photo collection?

I'd prefer to have a single collection with all files (or only few collections) to easily reach for older files and I'd prefer to have it on my workstation for quick access.

What constitutes "older files" for you?  Older than a week?  A month?  A year?

I have two main data drives, and SSD that holds active files and an HDD that holds "archived" files.  I upload my photos to the "active" drive and they are organized into subfolders by date.  After a year I move the photos to the "archive" drive.  This means that almost all the photos I actively work with are on the SSD.
