For the last 3 years, my mum and I have been converting our families media from analogue formats (printed photos, VHS and DVDs) to digital files.
As you might imagine, the amount of storage this has taken has been incredible.
Right now, we’ve got 3x LaCie Rugged drives hanging off the side of a Mac mini Server. We’ve got 6TB of space from this and we’re at capacity (technically 40gb still free, but why bother counting that right!).
I’m looking for a solution to be able to store, access and protect our data. I’ve looked into RAID devices and I’d prefer DAS over NAS because we’ve got the Mac mini which we also use as a HTPC and as the Plex Server.
Does anyone have any experience with particular DAS devices that they’d like to share?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Should point out, Mac mini has Thunderbolt, USB (2.0) and Firewire - It’s a Mac mini (Mid 2011).
