Good on you to mirror your drives. I have not ever been able to bring myself to mirror my drives, but instead stripe them for the increased speed and capacity. I do keep an exernal backup device and back up the raid set to it on tuesday nights, but my likelyhood of catastrophic hardware failure is higher (I have 4 disks) and I will never be able to rebuild one the way you can. I'll have to replace the disk and restore, a much more painfull solution. I very much hope my next motherboard will support raid 5, which I'd be a lot more comfortable with.
