You are absolutely right. SW Raid prevents losing data in case
of hardware (Promise / mainboard) defect. One can take the hdd
out and drop it in another machine to pull them out.
Otherwise you have to dig in EBay for a similar device to start
But: After all thinking about how's if's and the like I admit that
a good additional backup strategie lets admin sleep better.
