File Share Redundancy

We have a file share that is set aside for just our Art department. As you can imagine the file share holds enormous files that the artists are constantly working on. We are starting to run into a problem where the drive goes corrupt. Luckily we have backups of the share and we are usually able to get them back up and running fairly quickly.

My question is this, is there a way to prevent the drive from going corrupt?

The drive is connected to the server via iSCSI which is located on an Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d.

I've used DFS in the past, but only for naming convention, not for more than one location. Is there a way that I could make the share redundant using DFS? If so, if one location went corrupt would that automatically make the second location go corrupt as well?

Microsoft does not support one-way connections for DFS Replication. Creating a one-way replication connection can cause numerous issues including health check topology errors, staging issues, and issues with the DFS Replication database.

To create a one-way connection, instead make the replicated folder on the appropriate member read-only.
