    Default My dumb ass....

    So literally During the same week I told someone in here about my raid setup on my MacBook pro, and how it was so stable, I end up getting a disc failure...

    It wasn't so much because the raid, it was more because I had the disc spinning vigirously and ended up closing it shut and shaking it up (from picking it up and putting it in my bag).

    So now of corse I have a dead drive, meaning tHat the whole raid is fuc***d, and don't know how to save it. I currently have the drive in the freezer hopes it gets works long enough to back up. But I really need to get my info off of there.

    I got about a years worth of stuff on that that isn't backed up. All my newest sets, and sets for upcoming gigs, my tsptutor stuff, all my marketing materials for my clients, etc.

    Anyone able to provide some help?

    It's a lesson we all have to learn. Unfortunately, some of us (me included) have had to learn it the hard way.

    Best of luck to you, mate.

    I think you are confused on what RAID is. If a disk fails it should keep running.... thats the whole point. Or you're just calling something RAID that isn't actually RAID.

    THat depends on the type of array... there is a array that dosen't have any back up at all, Raid 0.

    Correct, RAID 0. Which is actually not a valid type of RAID. Why go through the trouble of setting up a RAID configuration when losing 1 disk is catastrophic...

    So many people see RAID and assume that it means that their data is backed up. RAID (valid levels above 1) provide protection against disk failures, but it is never a substitute for backups.
