Well, I really only bought the RAID enclosure to maintain an extra backup set. I'm already backing up on single drives, but I had more than enough retired 8TB drives to make a RAID out of them. While I'll sacrifice capacity for performance, there's a limit to what I'll find acceptable. I thought RAID5 was a good compromise. Of course I'd never settle for a purely striped setup.

In theory, the only time I'll ever read back what I have on that RAID is if I my 'live' drives fail and need to restore from the backup. Otherwise the intend is to just re-sync (once a week?) what's different from my live drive back onto it (essentially incremental updates - robocopy's good at that).

At this point I'm thinking maybe I should just do my backups straight from my live drive, onto a single external drive, and then let the RAID bring itself up to date by syncing from the backup instead. Then it doesn't matter if that takes days, since that won't force me to have my VMs powered down when the extra backup is taking place...
