Client Computer Backups outside the pool?
I notice in one of the stickies, it recommends leaving the backups folder outside of the pool.
Why is this and how important is it? I wanted to have all my data, including backups, inside one big pool for convenience. I could dedicate one 2TB drive to backups but, if and when my backups grow beyond this size, I'm screwed and would have to buy more drives, when I may have free space on the others, which were part of the pool.
Basically I'd prefer the flexibility of having the backups folder in the pool but I don't know how 'strong' a recommendation it is to leave it outside.
