Ok, my company transfers a lot of information via Firewire drives. Lately we've been increasing the number of transfers and having a hard time keeping track of what's actually on them.

Is there any such program to help manage the drives. Like lets you keep an active list of contents that updates everytime the drive is hooked up.

Or is the solution painstakingly kept database files manually typed?

Thats what I was thinking actually. Just a simple Mac Server with a big SCSI array for perminate storage and a few Firewire Drives for individual projects. Ofcourse they might view that as too expensive but what can ya do.

LaCie makes a 2 terrabyte external raid array that attaches over firewire that looks decent.But the good thing about tapes is that you can easily impliment offsite storage. Go for Sony AIT. Never had any problems with them. With a small investment you can get 200GB backups on a single tape. Stay away from travan tapes they suck.

On my linux boxes I run tapes on I create a manifest as I put the data onto each tape so I can grep through the manifest to find what i want.

Well now many of the engineers are screaming against the Mac Server idea (Even though I actually found a decent G3 with OSX in a store room and a could cheap SCSI controller cards on eBay) because "It's too easy for someone to just go and steal stuff with their own FW drive". Well if the server was out in the open then NO [censored], which is why I carefully explained to them thats the FIRST part of server security and would be kept under lock and key.

As for tape backups, also mentioned this but they whined because they used a similar system in the past but "it was too hard to actually find a file you need". Yeah they were using tapes like you and I use FLASH Drives... at that point I just shook my head and sat right down.

Any good Tech jobs in Portland? Or anywhere else for that matter.
