Okay, let me explain you. I'm kinda of a data hoarder. I have tons of music, video files (series, movies), games, software, etc. basically more than 8TB of data. I have them on my 16TB hard drive but I have been thinking of what I would do in case something happens i.e. disk failure, pc on fire, an eartquake, whatever, I think you got the point. I have been thinking of using RAID 1 but I have been seen tons of post people talking that is not a great idea to use RAID 1 since thats a hardware solution, not a backup solution. Then I was thinking of getting a 16TB external hard drive, but considering transfer speeds, I think its not kinda of a great idea to keep rewriting 8TB every month. So, what is your best bet or suggestion here? Sometimes I can't even sleep thinking of losing my data.
