Hey, im about to get a new DAW setup, but before making any orders, i wanted to ask the good folks in here, what is the best way to go in regards to running HUGE sound libs from external disks are.
Is it comparable in terms of speed and capacity to connect a external drive to that of an internal one?
If so, what protocoll do u use, firewire800 or eSata?
So should i go for 2 internal 1TB drives, OR 2 internal 500GB`s and one external 1 tb drive?
Id prefer to have 3 seperate disks, one for system, one for audio, and one (external) for sample streaming, but that would only be a good solution if the external drives are equal in speed and capacity.
Anyone like to share their experience, and possibly even a external disk recomandation?
Also, one quick additional question, can one create a dual boot at later stage, cause ill get windows vista 64 bit at some point, but for now i wanna stick with xp 32 bit until Vista is more settled.
Thanx, all input is appriciated.
