Rainier Falls – Mount Rainier National Park, WA

I am on the hunt for new backup and computer file storage options. Alot of people suggest Drobo and stuff like that, but I am leaning more towards two 6TB Western Digital Drives. I have always used them without a problem. Any suggestions would be great…

    Beautiful photo! I wrote an article recently on my backup system that might suit your needs. See http://thelightroomlab.com/2012/01/professional-grade-backup-plans/

    Personally, I am not a big fan of the Drobo. The idea is great but the reality is that they are a pain to troubleshoot and that all your assets are still in one box. A power surge, lightning strike, etc. will potentially fry all the drives in Drobo at once. I feel like a rotating pair of relatively inexpensive disks like the WD 6TB that you mention is a more robust and more cost effective backup solution.
