Just a head's up...

Keep in mind that when you backup your session (you *do* back up your
sessions, right?) ;-) that *you* must recollect the different parts of
the RAID path to get all the files that are part of the session.
Likewise when you restore your session (from that backup that you *do*
make, right?!) then you have to sprinkle the various parts around on
the different fake RAID elements.

I do not know if you have to put each part back where it was
originally but I do it. My mount paths are something like:


Where Audio is a mounting directory on my system's hard drive and
audio1, 2 & 3 are 1394 drives mounted underneath it.

Ardour creates a session directory on all 3 1394 drives and starts
storing files there. IIRC the XML stuff always goes on the first one
whereas audio goes on all of them.
