Short story: I do not want to buy a 3TB Time Capsule to replace my (almost full) 2TB one and not enough long-term room and just too expensive for only 1 more TB. Note: I will only use this network storage for my media (no time machine backups) and it will be stored in a media cabinet that is enclosed so heat and noise may become an issue since I am used to running my TC (which produces neither of each). So...I have been researching Drobo, Syncology and Mediasonic solutions. I think (for now) buying 2 x 2TB HDDs will suffice my need for storage and give me room to expand in the coming years. I like the Drobo solution since it seems like more worry-free HDD backup than the other NAS devices for a novice like me but don't like the idea of having to rely on the proprietary RAID configuration. Question: Suggestions for best setup for my situation? RAID5? HDD Mirroring? Drobo?? Also, I would like to keep a backup of all my data offsite but I'm not quite sure how to do this with a RAID type setup. Currently I use a 2TB external drive to make a copy of my media content roughly every 3-4 months and I put it in my dad's fire safe at his house. Would an online storage service act as a better solution instead of keeping a physical backup? Thanks for your help!!
