Okay, thanks!  I would assume if there are mirrors of each other in the same enclosure they both have had the same cycles.  Safest to replace both and move on is my guess.

Just to be safe.  That's $120 for peace of mind, eh?

Unless there is an error on the other disk i wouldn't replace it, just make sure you have a backup in place.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / LSRecovery.exe file.

I get you.  So, one bad sector on the one drive is really not that bad anyhow?  I am replacing it but just asking. 

What would constitute a good back-up?  Buy a USB drive that plugs into the NAS and backs up weekly?  Just want to make sure I employ the right strategy.

Like something like this that I can plug into my NAS and have it back-up weekly to it?

I get you.  But conceptually that is what I need to do to have a good back-up?

Thank you so much.  Rebuilding the array now on the new drive.
