My gf makes documentaries. HDV eats hard-disk space for breakfast and the new generation of tapeless cameras means double and triple backups as theres no original media. Up til now we've been buying a couple of external hard drives for each job - a working disk and a back up. But thats just getting nuts.
I've got a late model G4 Powermac sitting about and I though about using that as girt big HD enclosure as theres space in there for 6 drives, but suitable SATA controllers seem to be like (expensive) hens teeth. If I solved the controllers then the macs can be picked up for less than the price of HD enclosures.
Whats an economical, computer-illiterate (as in Mac user) solution to stacking up and backing up to maybe 5 or 10 3tb HDDs?
