    That's why its cheap. And because he's never tried to restore the data he isn't aware that they just continually overwrite the previous files when the disk is full....

    I have my NAS configured into 2TB NFS volumes, each which is mirrored.

    Every now and then I backup each of these 2TB volumes onto a separate external USB disk, then keep those in a small fire safe.

    The NAS contains real data, movies, music, virtual machines and backups of PC's.

    Every week or so I backup the important data onto an external drive via a Windows PC by running a DOS batch script. This keeps four copies.

    Every year I backup the important data and put a copy on the NAS.

    I liked UNRAID... until the time I had to reboot it and somehow the USB with the UNRAID s/w had become corrupted and I couldn't get the system up. I did have a backup of the USB and managed to get it going, but it put me off using it further. I bought a QNAP which is ok - a bit noisy TBH, and very expensive compared to a Microserver.

    Anyone want to buy a Microserver on the cheap?
