RAID != Backup

Today, my raid 10 degraded as a drive fell out of the raid configuration for no apparent reason. That’s what I get for buying a slightly cheaper raid card. I won’t say which one. I do know which one I will get next. I just need to come up with a good plan on how to transition my stuff over. But I am VERY glad that it is a raid 10 set up. As the only thing I lost is some time. I think the computer spent about 7 hours altogether repairing the raid. And NOTHING was lost. So that’s good.

Worst thing is that I also lost a drive that I was using as a scratch disk. Will have to replace that as well. Nothing important was lost, just some minor temporary stuff. Irksome that I lost it, just have to remind myself that it is not a big deal.
