Hey, I'm getting a bit paranoid about disk failure so I've been thinking about a solution. Firstly, my setup is a MBP which connects via FW800 to a 1tb ext hd I built myself. This HD is partitioned into 2 partition A(300gb) = time machine (I also have a mba which backs up to this via network) partition B(630gb) = a ton of movies, photos, uni work... If this drive fails I'll lose loads of movies, photos, etc, and my incremental backups that time machine has made. The prospect of this scares me! So, what would you guys recommend? My thoughts first lead me to look at drobo but after browsing their forums for a while there are a lot of users complaining about stability issues so that's a big no no. This leads me to consider a raid1 setup. I believe I can either do this by buying another 1tb drive + enclosure and letting osx do the work, or Buying a raid1 enclosure and another 1tb drive for it. So what's my best bet? Initial thoughts are to go for the raid enclosure as I don't see the point in lumbering osx with another task, but I would like to hear from someone with experience in doing this? does it keep osx busy? So looking at a raid enclosure - Is this the best solution? can anyone recommend a good enclosure?
