Hi i am looking at upgrading my storage sollution currently i use my pc to share music videos photos ect with my laptops and ps3. and use it for photo/video editing
i am doing this because i have just had 2 external drives fail with my back ups on, i have returned both and have recieved a full refund.
and one wd 2500ak which i should recieve my rma tomorrow of wd2500aaks
i now have £120 to spend. or maybe more if i sell some of my current disks

, 6gb ddr2 pc6400,nvidia 7800gtx, gigabyte 965p DS4
100gb dslr photos
50gb HD 1080p home movies
so split between the above drives and laptop(320gb) and ps3(250gb)
i have 2xsata raid 0/1

not sure if i should sell everything and start from scratch!
I am at present trialing windows home server but i would still like to use pc for video/photo editing so was going to put windows 7 back on when i got my new hdds. but still unsure as my laptop should be ok for editing
