Hello Experts


I have a file server that has the operating system on two drives in RAID 1 and the data is stored on 7 drives in RAID 5.  All data is backed up to Azure.  Is it necessary to backup the file server's C drive if all the "important" data is stored on separate drives in that server?   The reason I ask is if this server crashes, and I'm forced to replace the os drives and or the data drives, I would reinstall the os and then restore all data from Azure on the new drives.  Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,
cja
