If you are reading the pages of TweakTown then most likely you have already fallen victim to the New Digital World. The NDW has changed the game completely, the way we shop for content, the way we view content and once you have acquired enough of it, the way we manage our content. Just having a few songs on a hard drive isn't cutting it anymore. Now we are buying nearly all of our music, movies and even books online. Managing all of the content is the real trick and we all can relate to the trouble that follows when a drive goes down for good. Because of this, the real key is to manage your digital content with redundancy.
Most users are generally fine with just storing their content on one standard hard drive until they have a loss of data. At that point your eyes are opened to just how vulnerable you are to a personal digital disaster. If you want to know what it is like, just go to your own storage folder, highlight everything and hit DELETE. It can happen, it does happen and it isn't a matter of if, but when. Preventative measures are the only way to avoid such losses and the easiest defense is a good offence.
Of course, I am talking about digital redundancy most commonly known as RAID. RAID allows our data the chance to survive a disaster. It turns earthquakes into bumps in the road and along the way you have the peace of mind to go forth with everyday life as if your address was on Cloud 9, at least when it comes to your digital content.
Today we are going to take a look at the HornetTek X2-RAID. This product will allow you to keep two hard drives in one of many forms of RAID (we will go over the full capabilities on the next page) and do so at a low cost. The X2-RAID uses a common eSATA connection to your PC that is much faster than USB or FireWire, so you still retain desktop drive speed while having the security needed to survive a drive loss.
