I have two DROBOs to hold my data. I’m in the process of creating a disk pack to store offsite.
I’ve found these to hold my drives while they’re off site.
My plan is to put them in anti static bags and then into those rubber cases. I plan to plug these into the DROBO PRO every month to spin the drives and ensure that all is in order or replace any drives gone bad. Hopefully no more than 2 as I’ll have dual drive redundancy. I have a couple of questions:
- Are these good or have you seen a better product to protect the drives?
- I’m concerned about the few minutes that the drives are out. That is when I’m pulling them out of the antistatic bags and into the drobo pro and then out of the pro and into the bags. How do I minimize any possible damage to the drives from being out while they are being switched?
If you have any tips on storing drives, please provide them.
