Since it has been stone reliable over years, I'm keeping my R-PI / WD 4TB USB drive combo until the 4TB drive fails which may take years... And while the purists will complain about Rsync's down sides, it's worked well enough for me.
Looks as if we're going to replace our windows, remove the old wooden ones and replace with double glazed UPVC, to replace with wood double glazed is just way too expensive.
