I've just returned from Tuolumne Meadows and now realize that I need more storage. Right now I am using a 1 TB Cavalry (external) with fire wire as my main drive which includes all my images. Everything on my Cavalry drive is backed up to two other cheep 1 TB drives using just USB 1. I do not use RAID but backup regularly using SuperDuper. I am now considering a 3 TB firewire external drive. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2398863,00.asp
However before I do this I have some questions.
Next I will be upgrading my 2007 imac. Will I wish I had went with Thunderbolt at least on my main drive?
Is Thunderbolt an option on the new Mac Towers
Any other suggestions regarding solid yet budget storage?
