[Don Hertz] "he made the mistake of grabbing the wrong power supply and fried the drive. No problem he thought, as we make duplicates of every drive in the facility, however, he then plugged the backup drive into the exact same power supply and blew that one out too. He didn't realize the power supply was the problem, he assumed the original drive was just dead."

We backup this way but every drive uses the same rated power supply to avoid that. Lacie drives
in particular are known to have identical pinout connectors but different amperages. bad.

We store one set of drives on site and one mirror set offsite. at least once a year
they are powered up and checked. Have not had a failure or lost any data yet in 9 years.

LTO is the best option though as others say and that's what the big motion picture companies
use to backup film assets.
