Luminous Landscape has just posted a great review of the WiebeTech ToughTech Duo QR.
It’s a cliche, but one worth repeating – “The question isn’t whether a hard drive will fail, only when”. Never had a drive failure? You’re lucky, because eventually it happens to everyone. And if you don’t have a backup of your files, you’re SOL (Sh– Out of Luck).
In the office or studio back-ups can be straightforward. Apple has Time Machine, and there are a variety of backup programs for Windows and Macs that will make sure that your files are in more than one place. A RAID system is highly recommended, because depending on how it’s configured, it can simultaneously write to two drives at the same time. In the event that one fails, you have a backup, and the second drive’s data can be automatically rebuilt when a new drive is installed. This is called RAID 1. You can find out more about the different flavours of RAID here..
