I have searched the threads, but the threads concerning this seem to be from 2006 and 2008 without any current relevant info. Having just lost an EXTERNAL eSATA 1.5TB drive loaded with programming from the past 12 months, I am not exactly keen on doing that again. Is there a (or multiple) reasonably priced external hardware solutions that one can connect to a HR-2x for any type of redundancy? Thanks. EDIT: Sorry mean RAID 0 or RAID 5.
