This may be a crazy question, but…
I’m looking at getting a My Book Studio II (2x1TB) to attach to a media PC (running Windows XP) which is accessed by both Macs and PCs. (I’ve looked at adding more drives inside in a RAID 1, but I don’t have room for it.) I connect via SMB from the Mac, so the formatting for the Mac is not important, I don’t think.
Since I’m storing large video files (some several GB in size) and since FAT32 has a limitation in the largest file it can save (I think), I was looking at NTFS as the possible format. If I were to do this and format them NTFS, would the RAID 1 still work?
The main goal here is to get a device I can mirror, attach to this PC, and store large files on.
Thanks in advance.
