To Raid or not to Raid
A Frien of mine is buildin me a computer just to run Sony Vegas 6....Should he Run Raid 0 on it or seperate the two hard drives?
Re: To Raid or not to Raid
Key is to have separate drives for OS and media.
RAID is not needed and won't make a difference for the media drive if you're shooting and editing DV (HD and uncompressed, etc. is of course a different story).
With RAID 0, if you lose one of the 2/3/4 whatever number of drives, all data is lost.
There can be some performance gain on the OS drive with RAID 0, but today's best single drives are so quick I don't think it's worth the risk.
There are higher RAID versions that combine performance and reliability, but now you are looking at a good bunch of drives...
