    If the WHS OS gets corrupted, is it possible for one too lose all their data on the pooled drives, or can you just reinstall WHS and all the data will be there waiting for you.

    Yes, but that’s not the point. What happens if your home gets broken into, and your WHS box gets stolen?

    What happens if your house catches on fire, and your WHS box melts? Surge protectors aren’t perfect… power surges can be strong enough to pass through and kill your WHS box, and all drives hooked into that power supply. The WHS storage matrix can corrupt… and you can lose all your data then as well.

    Quite simply, catastrophic failures can kill all hard drives in your WHS box… you need to have an off-site backup of all data, at all times.

    The last thing I want to have to worry about as my house burns down… is saving a computer (or rather, the data on it).
