Question: Guid Partition or Apple Partition?
my goal is to set up several Hard Drives to be daisy chained for using them to organize Pictures using Lightroom and backing it up. Just one HD I want to be connected via FireWire 800 to the iMac. Before I start adding the Files to the new Drives I have some questions.
What partition map should I choose for that? Guid or Apple Partition Map? I won't be using PCs just Intel Macs.
When I was at the store I told them how I want it to be set up and daisy chained. So I was told to buy Ultra Max Plus from Iomega which have some option about Raid. Actually I don't know anything about Raid.
Is there anything I have to be aware of or to adjust? or can I make the workflow somehow better using Raid?
I want one drive (2TB) to be the master and the other 2 TB the Backup using time machine. Further on I want to daisy chain two more 400 Fire Wire Drives through the Iomegas as Workflow Drives and two more via USB as monthly backup for the Workflow Drives. Do they all need to be GUID or is mixing with Apple Partition ok?
iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
