RAID
Authored by: repetty on Sep 07, '04 12:12:38PM
The forms of RAID which duplicate files across disks (mirroring, RAID5, etc) should NOT be considered "backing up".

If, through carelessness or anger, an employee should delete files on a mirrored disk, they're just as deleted on one disk as they are on its mirrors.

These are complementary approaches to data integrity. One CANNOT replace the other.
