Simply set copies=2 and go on your merry way. Works for me and protects you from bit rot. Even if you do decide to put a second drive in at a later time, just remember, RAID is not a backup solution. I use deja-dup to backup my important files daily to an off-site machine for that. -- Saso _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
