This is absolutely correct. To the letter. This is the way to protect your
data if it's important to you and can't be easily replaced.

Subject: [slim] Don't go for RAID


I don't think people have read my posting - a RAID solution won't help when
your computer is stolen or you suffer a fire or even a lightning strike.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A RAID SOLUTION.
Spend the money on two external firewire (400Mb/s or 800Mb/s) drives
Use one at a time for a week backing p nightly, then swap with the other and
put it in the shed, take it to work or give it to a friend.
