Re: Setting up RAID, what is best for me?
It's not a matter of IF a hard drive will fail, it's WHEN.
The reason a RAID array has a higher failure rate is because there are more points of failure. Because of this, a RAID0 with 5 drives would be about 5x more likely to fail than a single disk.
It would also be roughly 5x faster than a single disk.
