    Hi Fooks,

    I have a server with 2 80GB HD's (RAID1) now I want to know is it possible to make a backup from the sites (cPanel backup) on the second HD or is that not possible or not a good idea, and can I better put a third HD in the system?

    Please shine a light on me :confused:

    Raid 1 is a mirror of each other

    there would be nothing gained by backing up to the raid 1 array

    your choices are

    best backup to another server with raid1 or raid 5

    better backup to another machine and burn to a dvd-rw

    decent put another hdd in and backup to it
