I am a scientific modeling and software developer. I use a fair bit of Python, C++, FORTRAN.

I am also a geek, and somehow prouder and prouder of being one.

I have a blog that I am painfully building up, here: http://blog.marc-olivier.org/

Thanks for the answer. As an aside, should I stick to the same model if I want to replace one?

Thanks for adding the precision. I'm aware of it (what is a RAID, etc). Some sensitive data are replicated by hand on a USB HDD that I use only for this. But, would you mind to elaborate the "do not use RAID in backup system" stance? Thanks!
