comment Software vs. Hardware RAID1 (Mirror)
I wonder if anyone has a personal experience 'upgrading' their bios-based RAID array to another motherboard? I'm currently working w/ ASUS board... so I'm thinking that another ASUS will have me covered. Still, I'm going to backup like my life depends on it!

Incidentally, a tag of 'reliability' would make this topic/question more findable.

Yeah, I've run that test tool at least a dozen times in the last 3 years. My local ISP is like a rock (which is more than I can say for local electric power). So weak link in the chain remains the Voip host.

comment Which RAID format is best for data privacy during RMA?
Paul, you are totally undermining my confidence in DBAN. Is it only the marked 'bad' sectors that DBAN skips? In which case, I would expect those sectors to make up about 1-5% of the drive... leaving a small window open for finding data, right? I guess you would hope that you didn't leave an unencrypted password in that 1-5%.

By the way, the NSA has a really nice lobby. Surely receptionists, but nice lobby.

Incidentally, NSA, & other gov't agencies... just because I mentioned I might be using RAID5 doesn't mean I am... I might just be messing with you.
