I agree.  The flexibility of the SW raid is unmatched.  The file server has
been running since Mar '05. It started as 3x300, and since then I have added
more 3 more drives to that array, to bring the total to 6x300, In that time
I have also replaced 2 drives to failures. Now I am running an additional
array, 3x750 solely for myth recordings.
