    i suggest to use a raid system, depending on your space, you can use raid1 raid10 raid50 + 2 hot spare disks + redundant powersupply + 1 lowcost mirror server to sync realtime

IX, thanks for the 2c 😄

The setup was indeed a raid 1 - the raid controller was faulty and caused both of the disks to fail without an option to restore the data.

Lesson learned the hard way 😳. We're already working on a redundant solution with multiple backups.

you're welcome :)

seems you are using an adaptec raid controller, i suggest using raid controllers which writing the raid config to the hard disks, if a raid controller fails, change the faulty controller and restart your server

another solution: duplexing = 2x raid controller, raid1 at each controller, one hot spare at each controller
