With any RAID system your main recovery strategy should be a good
backup. RAID is mainly about protecting your uptime, not your data. It
will keep your system going if a drive dies, but if you get a corrupt
filesystem or delete the wrong file the RAID array will faithfully
duplicate the problem across all of the drives...
