Comment Not a RAID replacement, but a good offline backup (Score 1) 272

Every tool is designed with a specific use in mind. It seems to me this was designed more as a back-up solution, not as a primary drive. If used as a primary drive, it will be difficult to keep data organized. Also there is the danger of a single drive failure causing the loss of 3TB of data. It seems to me the best use of this drive is as an entire system offline backup / disaster recovery solution. Keep your RAID, and continue to back up irreplaceable files (family photos, financials, etc) on media (DVD). Use this drive to do a full system back-up every "x" days, and maintain a history of past back-ups.
