Ok Guys,

First of all .. thanks for all the thoughtful responses !! I love this community so much. Always professional, well thought out comments.

Here is my new solution ...


  • Voyager Q USB 3.0 hard drive dock. .. I am using this to backup my DROBO FS to a 3TB offline hard disk. (ALL MY DISKS ARE 3.0 TB Red NAS disks from WD) http://www.newertech.com/products/voyagerq.php

  • Synology 713+ NAS Server http://www.synology.com/products/product.php?product_name=DS713%2B&lang=us

    Currently it has (2) 3 TB Drives in it that are mirrored. It is easily expandable up to 28 TB using the five bay Synology DX513.

  • Zenfolio ... since my online gallery uses the unlimited Zenfolio plan. I am sending ALL my selects their way. That way I have an offsite backup of all m selects. Since I am already subscribed to them it seemed like a better solution than carbonite or google drive.

    I will be using zenk for this http://www.plymptonia.com/?p=20

    This may change since they have a MB limit on each file ... I am using a D800 and the file sizes are huge.


My next task is to cull my library of all unwanted images and flatten all my edits in lightroom to JPG. I am thinking I dont need to waste all this space on RAW .NEFs ... at some point the raw data becomes obtuse. Maybe keep them in RAW for a year ?? Any thoughts ?

My Drobo FS will be relegated to being an un backed up Media Server. Movie and Music files are simply too big to backup for now.

My 4 bay Drobo will be put on display, front and center at the vanguard of my junk collection ... just in front of my Bowflex and to the right of my Daytona Beach skull piggy bank.
