Default Re: Look what i just bought

I have a question. . . (sorry to hijack the thread!)

I already own one of these hard drives.

Would it be faster to:
-Buy another one and RAID it?
or
-Buy one of these raptors?

And yes superman two 250gb drives will show as one 500gb drive.
only prob with raid 0 is if one drive dies all the data is lost , a better raid would be raid 0+1 so data is striped then mirrord

I would say 2 7200.10 would be faster in raid 0 than a single raptor.

But thats not a fact.

only thing is it would rely on the raid controller , and if one drive failed then bye bye data , dont rely on this for important data ,or if you do keep it backed up

isn't that basically a raid 5? and you would need two drives, and a third to match the total of the other 2 right?

oh and sorry to participate in the hijacking of this thread.

erm i dont thikn it is raid 5 , heres info about raid 5 http://www.acnc.com/04_01_05.html

about having 3 disks , you could have 4 250g hdd and just mirror the data written to two 250g hard drives

EDIT>there is a raid 0+1 http://www.acnc.com/04_01_0_1.html
just like i said

IF one drive fails than all is lost, but how often do drives fail? Or do they fail more often in raid setups? I'm kinda new to this area, so I ask, lol.
