i see that you also have an external HD that you are using as a bu right? Don't let the raid array give you a complete sense of security, if the controller dies sometimes you can't rebuild/retrieve the data unless you can get your hands on the same HW. Let me share a funny incident at work too. When I was showing a co-worker many years ago how to use a ghost boot disk. Well we booted on to the disk and we went too far and wiped my raid array on my desktop. Man I thought my data was safe, luckily I had unix gurus that helped me recover my data.
