"RE: DROBO SUCKS"

All good info above !

Here is an update for anyone willing to listen.

I have backed all my photos to an external disk that is now sealed.

I have rebuilt my directly attached DROBO storage. I use it for importing and working with my photos locally. It could just as easily be one of my internal hard drives. But with all the available space on the drobo it seems safe enough to use on photos that have not even been deleted from my camera.

When I am happy with the import into Lightroom and my initial processing of those images, I copy them to my synology server via Lightroom. The synology has two 3TB NAS class mirrored drives at this point. This server is setup to do an automated differential rsync backup nightly to a 6 TB Drobo FS. I already had the Drobo FS so I figured for now, until I have a cloud backup plan working, it's another layer of security.

I am currently evaluating online backup for a selects Lightroom database.
