Home Server upgrade / step 3

One of the Toshiba 6 TB drives died and had to be sent back to Novatech. Today the new drive came and I now have a mirrored pair again. At the moment they are about 9% mirrored - so it will take a few hours before my system is fully redundant again.

While I was running with only one disk in the mirror I was manually using rsnapshot to take a backup to a spare drive that I had mounted on the box. While it wasn't full live mirror, had the worst happened I would have lost a few hours of email at the most.
