Motion, I think the readers are confused by the diagram since it is lumping your standard storage drives with the backup drives.

Here's a simplified diagram of my idea:

  • Drive 1 is for all my photos (RAW files, Photoshop files, customer copies etc.)

  • Drive 2 is a backup of drive 1

  • Drive 3 is for all my other files

  • Drive 4 is a backup of drive 3

  • Drive 5 is a backup of the Powerbook internal drive

Drives 1, 2, 3 and 4 happen to be in the same enclosure and are removable, but all function as individual drives. I'm looking at removable drives because then I don't have to buy yet another enclosure and wall wart when they fill up, but can just buy another drive mechanism (and a rack tray).
