yeah we looked at that, we thought you could just put a hardware mirror card over them, as in theory a SCSI raid just presents itself as a SCSI device ...

    yeah we looked at that, we thought you could just put a hardware mirror card over them, as in theory a SCSI raid just presents itself as a SCSI device - and the card that was to mirror detected them as a Hard drives, but itsead of 1TB it was reading something strange, like 297MB - which wasn't anything that made sense because they were 200GB drives.

    like i said we are currently rsyncing two seperate units - which allows us to recover from accidental deletions, so we are happy (more or less) at the moment

    Can't you just try to create a software RAID-1 then? I'd say it's not too shabby. (At least it's better than rsyncing, isn't it?)

    Hey, this makes me score my 1000th post! Hooray for me!

    Congrats on 1000 Dolda

    Well we could do a software RAID, but we have always tried to stay out of that, I would have to look into how much overhead it takes etc - see we abuse the hell outta this TB
