This line has been recently quoted by another Creative Cow user, and there is no more accurate statement, than what Ricardo said ..........

RAID is NOT a substitute for regular backups.

So the next time one of you babies starts to cry "but I spent all this money for a RAID 5/RAID 6 array, and now I lost all my data" -
all I can say is SHUT UP you baby, why didn't you backup or archive properly.

Normally, RAID is not a good substitute for back-ups but something comes to mind: Why not use a RAID 1 (usually RAID 1) card to drive 2 back-up tape drives to make 2 back-ups at the same time? Fred Jodry

so then if you need a backup anyway, why even have a raid6? why not just have multiple raid0 arrays?
