I'll say it again: RAID is NOT backup. It just isn't. Just because storage systems used for backup can be using RAID does not make that any less true. Please do not pretend otherwise. There are enough people on here that don't have a clue about the difference. Please don't insult my profession.

This seems to becoming a fixation, someone described it as a religion...

RAID protects against a limited subset of failures, but opens the way to several avenues for disaster. it’s obvious that you need more than RAID if you want security.

Having two HDDs just about guarantees that one of them will fail.
