..are you using RAID disk technology for storage, and if so , what RAID
level ? This certainly is a consideration....

I think Jim Wheeler is suggesting this.
I don't think I'm buying.
A managed IT-approach to file storage should be safe. Single,
hard drives are not, IMHO, safe.
When the ground thaws this spring, I'll have a 1 TB store at my
mirroring my 1TB store in my home. Most of the items also live on either
two separate physical drives in the store as well as on the mirror store
on each of the stores and a PC.
So, I end up with 4 copies in two physical locations, but on 4 different
drives, or 3 copies in 3 physical locations.
