I'm interested in hearing if anyone has tried successfully or
unsuccessfully to use HDDs as backup media (in place of tapes).
The immediate problem that comes to mind is that HDDs are more fragile
than tapes and can lead to data loss more easily (although having each
backup written to two seperate disks [mirrored]) would alleviate this to
Any experiences or suggestions ?
