    i posted this over in OTAP before i realized there's a tech forum so, sorry about the double posting..

    I'm down to 80g on my 500gb external and struggling to keep > 10gb free on my laptop. i'm a photographer and shooting raw and keeping back-ups eats a ton of space up and i want a better solution than just buying another external hd or burning more dvds that will eventually fail on me. Preferably something with some or all of the following:

    - cheap
    - expandable
    - raid 1
    - network accessible
    - lots of space

    i'm guessing a Drobo, or Hammer-Storage unit is the simplest solution there anything else? perhaps some of u have built ur own systems that has all this? please share, thx.
