I have just changed my backup solution. I now have a RocketRAID 2314 eSata card connecting an ICYDock to my Mac Pro. So I can now back up all of my "home" directories to that single enclosure. I want to do a "clean" install of Snow Leopard on my Mac Pro so I can get rid of some gremlins I have with my current install. However now that I've switched my backup strategy, I'm having nightmares that I may have painted myself into a corner. Here's my scenario: I have the 4 drives in my ICY Dock set up as 4 seperate JBOD drives in the RocketRAID software. Therefore the 4 drives show up as individual drives in my disk utility. I used the RAID feature of my disk utility to make them all look like one drive. I've now backed up all my (and my wife's) home directories with _EVERYTHING_ we have in them. My concern: If I do a clean install of Snow Leopard, what will happen when I plug my ICY Dock in? I expect that the OS (not having the RAID configuration) would again see the 4 individual drives? But then I wonder... I will have to reinstall my RocketRAID drivers on the new install anyway... so will I even have the "arrays" that are created by the drivers anymore???? I'm worried that I've created this large disk capable of backing up my data, but if I blow away my OS configs, I seem to be stuck not able to connect to the data in this configuration and restore it. If that's the case, I'm wondering why I went through all the trouble to build this out. Am I over thinking this? Am I just tired and not thinking clearly about what I've done? Am I not making sense and noone will respond to this? If anyone can share their configuration/experience with this type of setup, I'd apprecaite it.
