There goes someone's porn collection.... LOL
I remember when my 2TB internal died along with my 2TB external shortly after and I lost a bunch of music, pictures and downloaded games on it. Not fun times. I can't imagine 10TB worth.
Yeah, that's why I always have to double the price tags I see when shopping for hard drives, because I always buy in pairs. One for use, one for backup.[/quotemsg]
I'd be careful with that as the two drives that I had die were of the identical model type; Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200rpm. These are now notoriously known to have a high failure rate. Your best bet is to buy two different types of drives (one for use, one for backup) just in case there is a defect in the design of one of them. I have a Toshiba and a WD now in their place.[/quotemsg]
Do people not realize that these are "NAS" drives, you're supposed to put them in RAID anyways. Sure you could use them in a single disk NAS configuration, but who does that?? With Raid 1 or 5, if you lose 1 drive, all your data is still retained. Just don't have the drives die at exactly the same time. My NAS will send me emails telling me that 1 drive has failed or is throwing errors, I can remotely log in from my smart phone and shut it down until I get a new drive.
