      I'd never found a spanned drive raid solution that meant you would only lose the data on the drive that failed before, or not as far as I understood (that goes from raid 0 to raid 5!). So there is no way to have the extra recoverability features that UNRAID provides by using any of the standard 0 to 5 RAID protocols on their own? Does this mean you have to use software raid instead of hardware raid? Also If i'm understanding this parity thing right, you can backup say 30tb worth of data on to 1 10tb drive through some sort of glorified algebraic form of compression? The question is how to have that AND never lose more data than is on one drive if one drive fails? (while also having the drives spanned so that they are recognised by the system as a single volume for organisational purposes)

            That actually isn't a bad inventory system for storage drives, if you don't have a storage server.

                                                        Since most high speed cameras write in a raw format, I think some in-line filesystem compression might have been hugely beneficial here.

Back in 1997/1998 I worked at a photography studio that decided to go digital. Back then a 5 GB SCSI drive cost about $500, and a regular IDE drive had about 20GB to 80GB of storage. Our only storage option was burning data to CDs 600MB at a time. Like your hard drives, we had a large assortment of CDs that I numbered 1 to about 200, categorized by year. So the first year we had about 120 CDs for 1998, 170ish for 1999, etc. I had to keep track of what images where on which disc on a spreadsheet. Sometimes our data would just sit on a hard drive because no one had time to back the info up before going home and I'd wake up in cold sweats afraid a hard drive would fail and we'd lose data.

                                                                              • Grickery
