@kev legitimately curious: were the drives all purchased at the same time from the same manufacturer? My boss used to have this paranoia in raid setups that all of the drives from the same assembly line would fail at the exact same time. Never really found out if that was true or an urban legend.

Hopefully everything goes smoothly, I look forward to hearing your backup solution. 🙂

@jish I’m sure the risk is raised if they’re from the same batch, but I imagine that would be negligible. They were all purchased at the same time, but all disks are fine (thank God).
