So for the life of my PC tat is dedicated for DaVinci Resolve 12.5 I have always used the fastest SSD configured to RAID 0 for the scratch discs. However a couple of times now I have had run into problems with RAID 0 causing drive failures without any chance of recovery (well I do recover from backup). But the worse is that when it fails I would have to start from scratch. I have learned from other people experiences that SSD configured as RAID 0 are more prone to failures than HDD configured as RAID 0. My understanding is that RAID 0 is best configured with HDD than SSD. So I am in a quandary as to how best to take on my next move since my RAID 0 SSD just failed the third time yesterday and I lost my work that didn't get into my nightly backups. The SSD drives are fine (Samsung EVO 850). So here are my choices for what I am considering:
1. Rebuild RAID 0 with the existing SSD drives (2 drives).
2. Replace the SSD with 2 7200RPM HDD and set it up as RAID 0.
3. Partition the existing SSDs as 2 logical drives (No RAID).
I don't want to do a RAID 10 as it does slow down from what I am told and I'm better off with an HDD Raid 0 from a performance standpoint.
Anyone experienced the same situation and made a better decision? Thoughts and recommendations are very much appreciated.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE TOO!!!
