Im also building an HTPC atm, and I was going to make it my storage device also. My question is what kind of backup should I have? I recognize that the backup should be completely independant from the htpc. I currantly have 2 500s and a 1 TB, im thinking, putting the 1 TB in the htpc, and using the 2 500s in the main pc to backup to, would be best? My mobo supports jbod, should I image on to them?

And lowfat how the heck to you backup a raid5 array? Is the DAS hooked directly to the system? Is there any chance that something could take out both, such as a surge?
