I’ve had to add another 3TB hard drive to handle my library again. It arrived on Friday and I was able to start the copying process yesterday afternoon. 1,715,000 photos = 1.73 TB of data that has to be copied before I can get back to work. Looks like it will be finished in another 7 hours if all goes well.

good luck with that!
(I trust you have suitable backup arrangements! 😉 )
Absolutely! That is the goal; to make my backup strategy more robust and reliable.
Congratulations, I think you’re worse than I am, LOL!!! Hey love your “Caisson At Sunup” … that’s fabulous … I am always intrigued by geometric patterns. Everyone seems to want to b&w them (which I DO like), but I usually prefer color … especially when it’s strong and dramatic!!!
Thanks Lois. Yes the struggle for proper backup and storage is a never ending battle. I have another 1TB drive that I have been using just for 2012 and 2013 in an effort to speed up the processing of images but with a massive project like the Ohio River Bridges Project the need for more storage reared it’s head again. I was backing everything up on my 3TB external drive and doing my editing in the 1TB drive until it reached about 90% of it’s capacity and slowed down to a crawl as it tried to store the large files I wind up creating with HDR and plugins. I’m pretty sure I will need to add a couple more drives before the end of construction. Whoever said storage was free sure didn’t think about how massive a digital library can become.
Good luck, Nick — and great photo, of course!
I hear that, I just purchased a Probox it holds 4 3TB Drives and works great!
Can you send me a link to the probox.
Here it is
Thanks I’ll look into this as a future solution.
FYI If your going to leave it running all the time make sure you buy Enterprise rated hard drives which are more robust with better specs.
Thanks again. Are you using it as a RAID?
No I am not. I use Adobe LightRoom and when I Import it sends the backup files to the drive I choose.
