I recently purchased a PR4100 primarily for backup storage on my home network. I am limited on internet usage due to my location, so I need to keep my back ups myself. I am currently using WD Smartware and backing up my pc’s on the unit under a RAID 5 configuration. My question is this. I currently can handle storage of my data on 2 of the 4 units of the PR4100. I think I would like to set up a RAID 10 system using 2 of the units for my primary backup and then the second 2 as a second back up. But these two units I would remove periodically to store off site. Again I can’t this over the internet as I do not have access to highspeed, unlimited internet usage.
If I remove this second set for off site storage, will it be OK when I restore them and will they then make the copy of the other two I want?
