    what they don't tell you about the raid game. I can backup an entire hDD in 6 minutes. That's with the raid recovery feature I can activate at will. If I ever decided to clone my computer, I can remove the HDD without shutting down the computer. The magical part happens when I put said SATA drive into a mortal machine all data is there. Put said HDD back into workstation, I have the reprecated data.

    This is why antionline is corp. shlt. People post to increase their post counts.... not their intelligence. You can read text books all you want but welcome to the real world. Heck, you can even backup stolen data to a mp3 device.

    Really? perhaps you should learn to read and comprehend first? the OP clearly stated that this was:

    1. A one off requirement.
    2. For static data only.

    There was no mention that this is a commercial requirement, on the other hand, the implication is that the need is a private, domestic one.

    Also, DVDs are no more likely to be flaky (flack is WWII antiaircraft fire)
    than a hard drive. Basically you get what you pay for and are lucky enough to receive. At least with a DVD it generally either works first time and for many times afterwards, or it does not work at all. Hard drives can fail catastrophically, without warning, and at any time.

    I won't even bother to insult the intelligence of professionals by commenting on relying on a RAID array as an archive or security backup............ RAID needs to be backed up just like anything else.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Ha ha. I commend you for your diligence on this topic, but I don't think he's worth your time.
