So my current setup is an internal 3TB drive and an external 3TB drive which is setup to backup the internal. The problem is it's getting full. currently 270GB left and it won't take too much longer to fill it up. probably by end of summer. The video camera has accelerated the consumption of GBs.
Long term solution would be to bin anything not needed. Compress the video files I want to keep and free up space but this would only free up maybe a few hundred gigs and I need something to last me a few more years.
This is what I'm thinking of doing and would like your input.
I purchased a 5TB external. Backup everything to it. take the external 3 and raid that together with the internal for 6TB. I basically double my space internally and have the 5TB on the external side. Was also thinking of adding another 5TB external that I could keep at a safety deposit box and back it up every other month type thing.
Any thoughts on this and any input would be appreciated.
