Re: Recommendations for long term storage: RAID or ??

For reasons I need not go into I'm a few weeks off having two buildings a few miles apart both with 1Gbit/s internet connections and I suppose I could have automatic off site and use either one seamlessly. I'd use a second Synology, but in the mean time USB disks will be a lot less trouble.

If you need continuous availability RAID of some sort will help, it would take a day or so to restore that amount of data over USB3, but disk failure isn't the only cause of data loss, actually probably a minority one, so please no one should think it reduces the number of backups needed.

I've not looked at snapshotting.  My only concern about it (as opposed to off line duplicate data) is that NASs are common now and I'd worry about people targetting the more popular ones.
