At home I am running Windows Server 2008 on a file server of mine in a RAID 5 configuration. I have all of the Documents / Pictures / etc. on all of the client machines in my house redirected to the server. I am running Crash Plan on the server that backups up all of the redirected files to another PC that is offsite.
I just purchased a new PC for myself and I have a question. Is it worth enabling offline files and increasing the limit to store all of my files offline on my new PC? The reason that I am considering this if for additional backup purposes. I figure that if something horrible happens to my server and I lose all the information that I will still have a "backup" of my files that are stored as offline files on my personal PC that could be restored to another PC / server. Is this a valid assumption and would you enable offline files or disable it?
