- Is it feasible to use a dx4000 hot swappable for a backup. For instance could I have 3 drives at raid1 and then swap a drive each night for off site storage. My thoughts with 3 drives is that we would still have at least dual redundancy at all times.
- I read in the forum that the sentinel will reconfigure itself to raid 5 if more than 2 drives appear. Can that be over-ridden?
- On this system, the active data would be 200-300 Megabytes. Any idea as to how long a drive change rebuild would take?
- When swapping a drive, what requirements are necessary? (ie does it have to be wiped clean or can it be a drive that was used 2 days ago?)
Thanks so much for your input…
