How to actually back up data?

Bit of a noob here so bear with me, but I just bought two WD 14TB Easystores from Best Buy with the intention of shucking, installing in my PC case and mirroring (this would be raid 1 I think) so that if one drive were to fail all my data would already be automatically on the second drive and I could toss the failed drive and replace it, no problem.

While looking up how to actually do this I’m reading that raid isn’t actually a back up and has a whole host of problems, which sent me down the rabbit holes of nas, freenas, truenas, unraid, zfs, etc. and now I’m more lost than when I started.

Is there any straightfoward way to make sure I don’t lose ~14TB of data so I can get rid of all the random drives scattered around my office and not have to worry about data loss?

  1. If you own/control an internet-connected PC in another location,
    Look at [SyncThing](https://syncthing.net/)/%5BSyncTrayzor%5D(https://github.com/canton7/SyncTrayzor), which is an open source, free ‘own cloud’ utility for realtime file synchronization.

    I’ve been using SyncThing to protect my 3.7TB (and grwoing) music collection for over a decade.

    Also, as you combine your files, use a duplicate file finder utility to reduce bloat.

  2. For one, a hard drive rarely just randomly dies out of the blue. It shows signs of failure. You just have to actively monitor the drive, simply by checking SMART status periodically, preferably with a regular surface scan.

    For Windows, I can’t recommend Stablebit Scanner highly enough. It’s a paid product, unfortunately, but you can schedule it to scan your drive on a set interval (once a month is usually sufficient) and will alert you of any concerns. Also download and install CrystalDiskInfo and check drive status periodically. It’s a free app and only takes a few seconds to check status.

    Avoid RAID 1. If you have a problem with a file, it will be mirrored to the other drive. RAID 1 simply will keep your data up and running if one drive fails.

    In your case, with two 14TB drives, you’re better off doing a regular backup of your main 14TB data drive. Don’t just do a file copy backup, because that’s basically just a delayed RAID 1. You will want to use a program that will create snapshots or incremental backups so you can go back in time if your data is corrupted, deleted, or changed or locked out due to ransomware or something stupid like that. There is a free version of Veeam backup, Macrium Reflect Free, many others out there. Even use Windows backup.

    You can then use those “random drives around your office” to make occasional “cold backups” of your most important files. Basically just copy / paste files, store them somewhere preferably in a completely different location/building, and refresh them with updated data every so often. These are great for disaster scenario recovery.

    So to summarize:

    1. Don’t use RAID 1
    2. Backup from one 14TB to the other 14TB using whatever backup program you wish
    3. Scan your disk surface regularly and check SMART status
    4. Use old drives for “cold backup” to keep offline stored somewhere.

    That’s the gist of it.

  3. Shuck one drive and install into PC case. Keep the other external and connect it periodically to run a backup job. Then disconnect and keep safe somewhere.

    There’s loads of backup software out there but some good ones include restic and kopia.

  4. RAID isn’t a backup. It’s a way to minimize or avoid downtime due to drive failures and needing to restore from backup.

    RAID-1 at home should only be used if you only have two drive slots (ex laptops with 2 Pcie drives). Use RAID 5 instead to avoid high overhead.

    You need to backup your data somewhere safe.
