Sadly I don't have the money at this time to pop for a 2tb ssd. So I was wondering about a sshd. I might do it just to find out and measure the differences. Going from a standard drive i saw major reductions in time for searches, as well as adding books, metadata changes in bulk. I hate to give much of that up. Conversions I'm not so worried about as I think as spoken of here that it is more cpu bound and though fast im still only pushing a 2.5 ghz xeon

Sigh just took a moment to look at upgrading my cpu and it isn't worth it.. E5 1265 vs3 2.5 ghz cpu is only about 10% behind performance of a i7 3770 which is the fastest cpu that will go in my mother board that I can tell. Price is to much still to bother for only a 10% cpu gain. im pushing 8000ish cpu marks so can't complain for 5 year old computer. It's funny but It would cost me more now to build the same computer. Ram is higher, used cpu of the model I have is more than I spent on it new. hard drives are pretty much the only thing cheaper than then for the same item.
Hmm, how about RAID-0 with another 1TB SSD (albeit be extra vigilant with backup and replication)?

That is an excellent point... I might end up doing that but in general I really don't like raid 0 arrays at all. I actually have a fast pcie raid 0 on my system across 4 25gig chips running at almost 1000megs a second I use for video editing and conversions etc.. but I never leave anything on it. You have doubled your chance of data loss.

My current backup strategy is pretty lame given that I am an IT professional. I simply rsync my data manually every week or two to external hard drives stored in a safe.

I have been looking at a network backup using Urbackup. I install and support it for clients. Absolutely stellar open source backup solution. but right now my redundancy isn't where it should be much less using a raid 0.

I keep cruising ebay for a used data server or NAS I can afford with 15 to 24 TB of redundant space on it. lol. maybe i will find that deal soon.

Performance and simplicity come at a price and right now im having problems affording that. It's totally doable if I go to a much more complicated solution with less performance. That's kinda what I'm doing right now with most of it and I'm really tired of it.

edited march 2018 to change raid 1 to raid 0.. Everywhere I had said raid 1 I meant raid 0
also though not for my books I had both a backup drive and then the main drive the data was used from fail with full loss of all data the other day... I could have fixed it but was trying to buy a larger hard drive rather than just replace the smaller one that died. I put it off because of lack of money. Just the time invested in the lost data was priceless. Don't do as I did.

Yeah, I wouldn't trust RAID-0 to be sole repository of data even for just a day.

My backup's pretty crude, too. Dropbox is pretty much my only offsite backup and is installed/replicated on two laptops and two desktops. Locally, scheduled nightly FreeFileSync with versioning to external HDD and NAS.
