I saw this post by another poster, & tried to do a reply, but I got a warning saying that it is over 120 days old, & if I want a response I should start a new thread, so here I go.

So far, I have had my hard drives set up;

A 2tb hard drive with both originals & derivatives, with the derivatives consisting of edited photos, text documents, & documents/photos of my art.

Another 2tb hard drive with all my music on it, albums ripped in flac, mp3, & album art scans.

A 1tb hard drive with my ripped movie DVD's & scanned DVD cover art.

Is it ok to have originals & derivatives on the same drive? when I looked at this drive in istat pro, it showed up as about 1/4ths full, & so far, I thought it would be more economical for now to keep them on the same drive.

if this is not the best arrangement, any suggestions on how I should arrange my digital content?

I also forgot to mention the formatting, I would prefer for all my hard drives to be able to plug into both mac & PC, all my drives are in FAT 32, but I realize there is the file limit of 4gb on FAT32, & so I have my movies at NTFS, I connect it to my mac using a 3rd party driver, NTFS for mac.
