Monthly Disk Swap

We purchased a My Cloud Home Duo 8tb and would like to swap a 3rd (identical model/capacity) disk each month and keep the one not being used in a fire safe. When I swap the disk, should the new disk go in slot 1 or 2? I don’t want last months data to over-write the current copy. Any advice on this? Does anyone else secure a backup copy in this manner?

This is a great idea. Not sure how would the MCH Duo behave in this case, and how long would it take to rebuild the array and copy the data to the disk.

It would be great if the WD listened to their customers like every other normal company does, and add a scheduled or automatic backup to a USB attached drive, (or some other drive on the network), so there would be no need to swap the drives manually, but i guess they’re too busy adding emojis to their software.
