View Full Version : Dvd-r Raid

2nd August 2008, 08:47 PM
Hello all.. sorry if this is the wrong place to post this..

I want to set up a DVD-R RAID on Fedora 9, and i was hoping that some of you may be able to point me in the correct direction..

The reason for doing this.. I have a lot of data on my home network and would like to back it all up in one place.. Single DVDs are ok but i would like a faster way of doing this.. I was hoping to set up 3-4 DVD burners in a RAID 5 Array and use them as a back up destination.. RAID 5 in case a disc is lost or Damaged.. Maybe RAID 6...

Any suggestions???

Many thanks :)

Never heard of this, DVD raid.

Much faster to use a big standalone hard drive as the backup drive and use tar.

Check my backup script in my sig. Served me well.
