But I virus can destroy the index file on a HD or even worse start
overwritting the data with trash data. So viruses are still an issue. Wear
reduces the live time of the HD and increases the chances of losing data. So
why have the HD spinning all the time and expose it to other risk if you can
simply just unplug it and spare it from all that? Well, as I said a couple
of times before (and now for the third time) I do not suggest mirroring with
RAID for archiving!!
