HDD For Backing Up HDDs...

I got so paranoid about all the data on my computers (and tired of backing up to optical media) that I put together a Windows Home Server for backup purposes. I installed 4 HDD (6TB) about a year ago and now I have a failed drive so I cannot even back-up or determine what I lost until I can get the bad drive identified and replaced!

All the drives I was backing up are still working but without benefit of a backup system. This is the first HDD I have lost in about 15 years and it was run 24/7 so it should have outlasted my normal drives that are power-cycled every few days.

Grrr...
