Hi, I'm hoping I can get some advice for my particular case. I work with a lot of video and still image files, and my current storage setup is running out of space. Currently I have a simple setup: - OS/Apps: 240GB SSD - Cache/proxies: 140GB SSD - Photo/Video Data: 2.5TB 7200rpm HDD (85% full) - Backup: External 2.5TB HD (backed up using "free file sync") So, I need more storage space (at least 4TB), but ideally I would also like to have better performance / speed. I am also on a pretty tight budget. (I'll also need to buy a larger external HD for backups. ) A DAS / NAS solution like Drobo would be ideal, but too expensive. SSDs are also too expensive in that size. So that leaves me with buying another HDD and.... I've been researching this a bit, and these are the options I have come up with so far: - Windows Storage Spaces. I don't know much about this, but seems like it won't improve performance much? - Drive Pool. I just read about this. Seems good, but again, doesn't really improve performance? - RAID0. This seems like a good option for increasing performance, but I can't easily add to it later? Anyway, I'm sure you guys have a lot more knowledge about this stuff than me, so what do you think is the best option in my case? Or is there something better I'm not aware of?
