How to get to 32TBs quickly?


#21

Just saw that Amazon put the 8TB SMR external drives for $149 @ prime. Think I will get 2 more.


#22

the 8tb ones on amazon uk are c£190 with 6tb hdd coming in at c£140 making 5 of these the current best way:
6tb - (5x 140 = £700)


8tb - (4x 190 = £760 (plus 2tb left over ) :slight_smile: )


#23

Is this as easy as copy and paste? Plot say 1TB on internal fast drive, then copy over to external usb drive?

Any links to more information?


#24

just drag and drop the file from one drive to the other

I highly recommend using the new TurboPlotter. It will do the plotting to a faster drive and then moving over to the slower drive automatically for you. Supports CPU & GPU.
