Just a reminder... On Win 10 my 2 TB Raid 1 array using 1.3 TBs containing
all my data, 3 dev VMs and all my source code was corrupted. It took a very
annoying day to replace HW(controller) and recover data/VMs from my backups.
All is back with NO data loss.

As it has been said here before "Raid is not a substitute for backups". I
have multiple copies with at least 1 off-line(crypto locker/power surge) and
1 off-site(fire/theft). I don't use any cloud backups. Why? MySpace lost 12
years of user data last year. Although cloud backup reliability is high it's
not high enough for me to bet my business on not to mention how long it
would take to download 1.3 TBs. Although all my Mac data is an SMB to the
Win Raid I still use Time Machine on the Mac so I don't need to re-install
components needed development.

Stay vigilant my friends.
