I've given up on Thunderbolt for now--there's not much out there yet, and what is available is expensive. I did find a good FW, 4 bay JBOD enclosure though: http://www.buy.com/prod/datatale-smart-raid-4-bay-firewire-800-esata-usb-enclosure/220268913.html?listingId=136650692  (might be able to find it cheaper on ebay). It works well, except when daisy-chained with other FW drives.

Hey Jim,

It's a bit of a shame that things have been so quite around here. I came with more or less the same question. It seems that there are TONS of raid solutions out there. Not so many JBOD. Based on my read of the DAM book years ago, I have been working on JBODs for several years... but just the lack of available hardware is leading me to think that I might need to switch my approach Sad

Having said that, I did find ONE solution. OWC makes a rack system that can be mounted JBOD with esata.

I don't find the rack system too appealing, but it is one option.

I also switched to Blu-Ray because DVD was no doable anymore. For every card i shot (8 Gb) i was required to burn 2 dvd's. In the end i was not doing it anymore but now i am again.
So, the answers to your question are very interesting for me also..

Chronosync will do precisely what you are asking - create a mirror of drive A onto drive B. There is a verify copy option which will add to the integrity of the backup.

I use this to sync to my image backup drive using a script that runs it every hour.

Has anyone moved from DVD to blu-ray? I'm thinking this would be much easier as teh buckets would be larger and require fewer burns.

My concerns are:

Will Blu-Ray be around very long as a format? (Then again, will DVDs?)

Will an internal Blu-ray burner be compatible with the new Mac pros that are rumored to be coming out in the near future.

First question is factual, second two are speculative. Thanks for any thoughts you might have.

My advice is to switch over to Lightroom if you can.
Migrating to EM maybe is the easiest way for you but it has no future
Migrating to MP does involve more work and preparation. When you consider this option serious; minmal do some research for Lightroom too.
 
The support of MP is not what i hoped for with Phase One, a 'real' Photograpy label, instead of Microsoft. However, when it still was Microsoft (EM) there was better support and involvement in the user forums. Both are not committed enough to develop it as it should.
Adobe however does show dedication to take Lightroom further and further. Right now, with the recent price drop, i think it's far most the better deal.

If you don't want to make the switch to a different program all together.  Both Expression Media and Media Pro work just fine on Mountain Lion.

KEVS,

Expression Media is no longer supported, so it isn't an option. Phase One purchased EM from Microsoft but if you take a look at their forum it doesn't appear to have very good support. I would suggest moving to Lightroom, you can run a trial version for 30 days. The worst part of migrating to LR will be the loss of catalog sets and putting together collections to replace them, but it's doable and Adobe support is good.

I'm moving soon to Mountain Lion, what should I do? Iview is power PC.

Go to Expression media? is that for Mac? Is the interface similar? Does it recognize iview .ivc data files. other ideas? thanks

First a quick thank you to Peter and John for all their help 3 years ago.  Along with the great book, this forum helped me move to my current DAM process using primarily Lightroom with occasional use of Bridge which has (knock on wood) been running smoothly for several years now.

A question which I hope you can help with:

I run Lightroom4 on my MacPro and have all image files on one of the drives (backed up to remote drives).
I am going on holiday with my MacBook Pro and would like to take the opportunity to catch-up with some out of date keywording.
I would like to take the Lightroom catalog, with previews on my laptop, but without taking the original image files.

Is the following process going to work, or will Lightroom have an issue updating keywords when it cannot "see" the original files?

Catalog export. 
Check "include available previews"
Do NOT check "export negative files"
This should create .lrcat AND .lrdata files which I can copy to laptop
Add and update keywords while seeing previews on laptop
Return to office and import Catalog onto MacPro

Any help of suggestions you can give would be much appreciated
Thanks
Dave
