I don't know about you. But I'm still old-fashioned when it comes to backing up. I have 2 drives and drag everything over making them identical. And I have never had a problem. There's been some Riad horror stories going around and I'm really sketical using it. Here's what goes through my head... Is this thing really working???? What if a drive fails... will it tell me?? Are my files backed up??? If one drive fails will both drives be messed?? I don't know but letting the RAID system just SIT there and do all the work is very weary to me. I hope I can overcome this one day. Because backing up manually can be time consuming, although re-assuring. Am I alone?
