Okay so here's the story, two nights ago I left my 1TB HDD on my bed and with my MBP reading from it. Next thing I know I hear a BOOM! I look over the bed and find my HDD laying on the wood floor. Now it's making all sort of grinding noises and blah, I know it's dead but I filed with WD to replace the drive so that shouldn't be a problem. Now my situation is this, I had all my information on that drive including movies, music, photos, software copies, etc. I don't want to bother retrieving them since it'll just be a pain in my side but I do want to look into a larger array for my data protection needs. I was thinking something like Drobo or does anyone know of something similar for cheaper? My goal is to have a "Data Vault" where I can keep all my digital files but also expand the capacity by adding more HDDs. I'd like the array to have FW800, USB2, and perhaps eSata and Ethernet. Anyone have any ideas of where I can find something like this?
