Hi all!

My question is two-fold...
1: I'm trying to find the cheapest way to store my raw editing footage (I'm expecting to have 10TB of footage, give or take) in an external enclosure. It seems that RAID arrays are quite expensive and too complicated for what I'm looking to do. Can I use an external hard drive docking station like this one to connect my hard drives and then put them into a RAID configuration in Windows? From my point of view, this seems like a great way to have a large amount of storage with some redundancy. Really, what I'm asking is: are there any glaring downsides or problems with this setup?
2:
What is a NAS hard drive and do I need it for this setup? In other words, can I just buy a standard, high capacity HDD?

Thank you in advance!

Best Regards,
Erin Joan
