Seems I got it wrong and the single drive will be for 'some other purpose'. Fine, but all the more reason to back it up. A backup server is not the place to avoid data security. From personal experience I can tell you that life is hell when your backup drives are needed but don't work. My backup server has a mirror pair for the data, and that gets copied to an external drive which lives off site. And I'm not sure I've got enough backups.... yet (-: -- DA Fo rsyth Network Supervisor Principal Technical Officer -- Institute for Water Research http://www.ru.ac.za/institutes/iwr/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
