I am about to start editing a documentary in Premiere using footage 4K (UHD) footage shot with Sony FS7. So far, I have 4TB of material, but I suspect by the end, I will have between 12 and 15 TB.
I am interested in 'best practices' for editing a longform project.
1. Should I transcode or use proxies?
2. Should the transcoded/proxies material go on a seperate drive, linking to the original media?
3. When I go to output final, will I have issues if the proxy or transcoded material is smaller than UHD?
4. Output: If I do not change names of original footage, can I just swap the proxy/transcode drive with original media drive and output?
I am not a technical editor but I do want to set up the project correctly so that there are no issues later on. What is the correct workflow for best practices in editing a documentar/longform with 4K material?

I have been editing a project for several years and it has become quite large. The media is stored on (2) G-Drive 8T raid drives. I believe that I am working with Raid 5 because the project files are approx. 4.5T and the drives are nearly full.
Although I have backed up and stored my raw media files...I do not have a backup of the project drives of the converted media.
I am looking for an inexpensive system for making backup clones of my project drives, however, there are no drives out there more than 4T.
Does anyone know the best method for cloning my project files?

Can anyone tell me the process for archiving, ingesting and editing in FCP with Canon XF 300? I would eventually like to do my online uncompressed at a post facility and am hoping to come up with a workflow that would give me the highest, best possible resolution.
Also, I need a 'how to' guide on archiving my original media which I download from cards. I am confused at the moment, because once I ingest in FCP and log everything in- the description of the shots change, etc.
