Thanks,
Scott

Since I have slowly changing data, I'm leaning toward a software, snapshot RAID system like FlexRAID or more likely SnapRAID. UnRAID definitely has advantages with...

I didn't mean to be confusing, But yes, you can also call it bit rot. That's certainly a fair description of what is likely the most common silent failure. But there are others, such as a head crash...
