RAID drives and backup.

Recommended Posts

I feel like an old man asking this but what do people do these days to backup their files?

 

Yes theres cloud and multiple hard drives, but I'm thinking that a RAID setup would be my best bet.

Redundant backup and no service fee. I'll have my projects that I'll access consistently, and most of my active client related material lives on my Dropbox Pro account.

BUT theres that time when projects are done. Where should they go?

 

I'm looking at Drobo's 5D and 5N. Both have their advantages and drawbacks.

 

Thoughts? Thanks.

I have a Drobo FS and I've had good luck with it over the past year. It is currently undergoing it's biggest test though: One of the drives failed today (which will eventually happen in every RAID) so it's in the process of rebuilding the data protection now. I like the fact that I can still access data if need be while this is going on, and that the replacement drives can be of any size, make, etc. I'll let you know if this goes sideways, but if it works as advertised I'll be fully sold on Drobos.
