RAID's primary purpose is not to serve as a back-up.
If you want to go for file safety, just set the hard drives up 1:1, ie one backup for every used hard drive.

Try gentoo.

Should have installed Gentoo.

I know, but it protects against drive failure, which OP has suffered.

That's where the back-up comes from.

It can, but it can also lead to a catastrophic loss of a lot more data.
Trying to restore a drive in a RAID system is a good way to kill off another drive or more.

That's why they tell you to build up your RAID system with hard drives from different manufacturers, different purchase dates and different merchants, but it's still not as really "safe".

Why do you lower yourself down to "consumer".

You can buy high-grade hardware and use advanced technology too if you want. You act like you have to be an average pleb that buys 1366x768 laptops from best buy.

What is your definition of "consumer".

What is different about someone who has server/workstation grade hardware and runs servers and programs, but makes no money, and someone that does?

No, he should be using OpenRC on Gentoo.

Only if you're using filesystems not based off of ZFS like btrfs and all sane environments are. You could remove three of four drives in RAID with a proper filesystem like that and still be able to access all the data.

>>102008485
Not him, but the technical aspect of systemd I like more than upstart. Upstart would have to be the worst in terms of function imo.

However I'd still choose upstart solely because I don't like the fact systemd that systemd is trying to create a different operating system, GNU/systemd/Linux as opposed to GNU/Linux.

It's not just an init system. They release APIs/libraries intended to be used by third party software, stuff like udev and Gnome3 have already become dependent on systemd, others will too in the future.

This is an issue because there's a ton of linux users that hate systemd and won't use it, and other systems like BSD can't benefit from it. It's again the same old shit, more fragmentation caused by Redhat being dickheads and having to re-invent everything.

>>
>>102008695
>Deprecated

Except it's not? The bleeding edge homosexuals at Redhat even made it systemd only. That's why forks like eudev were made.

>No it hasn't

For full functionality of Gnome3 it is. Gentoo devs themselves tried avoiding a systemd dependency for Gnome3 as much as they could with hacks, but it's just not viable/practical.

I'm going to continue to use Gentoo, pretty much the only non-cancerous distro.

You mean the most bloated, portage is absolute shit. If anything you should build the system up to Xorg from scratch and then use pacman or a similar light package manager, or continue from source builds.

Gentoo is probably one of the heaviest distros in terms of disk-space once you get it going, but it's because it's source based really.

I like portage a lot, pacman however, hell no.

>>102008870
He isn't really saying the stuff doesn't have counterparts, because well shit it's really just an attempt at making a clone of Unix that's completely under the GPL. He's just trying to say that they are all specifically GNU software and everyone's using it, regardless of whether or not there's alternatives or if they're "innovative".

Okay.

I have all non-replaceable data backed up to a server or on assembla in case of my work stuff. I would still lose a lot of stuff like porn and anime but at least I wouldn't lose anything critical. And honestly, anyone can back up their important stuff this way- it's not like it's hard or costly, so nobody really has any excuses.
