I was stupid, tried to make a dual boot with win 7 and Fedora: lost complete disk while thinking my images were ok: they were not and I lost a part of my holiday pictures of Africa made just the week before :'(. Then for the first time started to study how to make my backups better and discovered something like REED. Didn't know what it was and how to, but soon discoverd the hardware and the software options. As a MS 'lover' I would never ever use theirs. Bios from a Dell computer: forget it. No I want to keep control myself and that in the future and on every machine/os coming.
It didn't take long before I noticed the presence of Flexraid ( Snapraid page ).
So I bought a Sharkoon 2bay with 2 x 2TB Seagate disks in it and put it 'mirrored' to start with good stuff. Then I followed your instructions in the Beginners guide (all default settings) and made my first raid of course with copied data to test and learn how to keep it ok.
This is how far I got: it seems all right but I have to build confidence.....
I am not like you guys with all the knowledge and experience and that is why I wanted to share my strugling and doubts because I am convinced that more and more people like me (precious data and an OS that takes a week to build again) want a definite solution for mirroring, backups and images.
So for now Brahim, thanks thanks so much for the gem you and the others made. I do hope you will continue because what is the use of everything if one day my raid will be inadmissible by every means?
