I need some help because I'm looking to completely change up my workflow and storage for my photography files. I'm no means a professional photographer but I do pretty good on an amateur level but earlier this year I dropped my external hard drive and I can't access roughly 5000 saved photos. This was after I purchase a new ASUS all in one computer which has left me completely frustrated because I'm now using windows 10 (I was using windows 7 on an old laptop) and the system runs like a pig in winter.
So for storage, I'm looking at a 24TB Pegasus2 R6 Thunderbolt 2 RAID Storage by Promise Technology but I'm starting to think, should I try a MAC? I've never used a MAC computer.
What are you using and why? What would you do different looking back? Lap Tops vs. Desk Tops?? Types of monitors for the most accurate color. Please, no cheerleaders for the MAC, I'm just looking for the next best possible solution for my woes, a logical solution. I'm curious what many of you are using and why.
