Hardware installation: storage media

> PREVIOUS: Hardware installation - Sound hardware > NEXT: Setting National Instrument Card

We use USB2 external hard discs for storage. We like the Lacie hard drivers: they are very reliable and simple. It is advised to keep the operating system on a separate internal hard disk, and use either the USB Lacie drives for recording, or have an additional internal hard disks, or even better -- a RAID. We custom build our computers with internal RAID system that gives effective 4Tb of storage space (with redundancy) so that bad hard disks can be replaced (swapped) on the fly.
