For those who image to file, what kind of storage do you have connected to your PC 3000?

I've got 8x 4Tb HGST SAS Enterprise drives in a RAID 6 (so 24Tb effective). Along with an Areca 1880i controller. It's enough to keep all the smaller images for at least two weeks. Bigger drives such as a full 4Tb I'll still image out to a single drive. I'm actually considering adding another external RAID to it for more storage, but haven't gotten to it yet.

I usually image by bitmap unless I can't get a full read of the MFT or expect to be looking for deleted data for some other reason, so that significantly cuts down the size of the image files. Expecially when it's a 4Tb that only has 200Gb actually used on it.

It seems Imaging is preferred by most of the folks.

Are damaged HDD with scratched platters slower and harder to image? What are some of the problems that can happen and what happens after the imaging process?

I have one machine set up to image to a 16TB RAID and one machine to single hard drives. Single drives give a little flexibility when space is becoming tight. Guess I could just get another RAID lol.
