I saw another post regarding this, but wanted to restate it. Any pooling solution has to have a method to do a server backup of the pools data, without backing up the duplicates. It seems there is currently no way to do this. I fail to see how such a fundamental feature could be missed. WHS V1 did this.
The rebutal in the previous thread was essentially "the duplicate is already a backup, so backing up the pool is redundant". NO not at all. Backup prevents a logical error (deleting/changing a file). Backup can be taken offsite in case of total loss. Backup can prevent a 2 disk failure from losing data.
There are lots of reasons to have it and not one good reason not to.
If this product can't support it, then it is useless.
