Re: Curiously Complex RAID question
Let me get this straight because I might do this thing:
Raid 0 - 2 HDDs working together to increase speed
Raid 0+1 - 2HDDS working together to increase speed along with 2HDD working together. When you write data to the Raid 0, you're simultaneously writing data to the raid 1, this way you backup everything as you go.
Raid 5 - Same thing as raid 0+1, but you have only 1 HDD being the backup?
So let me ask you this: Wouldn't it also be fine if I installed everything on Raid 0, but I had all my files (texts, movies, music, etc) saved on a separate HDD? This way I wouldn't "wasting" space by saving doubles of everything.
edit: Too many RAIDs!!! I was reading Wiki and it lost me. But I have to go now. Later.
