6 As I told you before, I used RAID-1 of two conventional olde spinning-
7 platter hard-drives, using a hardware-RAID SATA controller. An
8 additional drive can be standing by as a "hot-spare" or RAID6 can be
9 used (on newer controllers) which resists failure of 2 drives per array.
11 Why would I mention this if flash memory is as "obviously" much safer
12 as your above statement seems to imply?
