Re: RAID, to?

Adding one more thing: the so much talk about the risk of raid 0 or other speedy arrays comes from server situation where both speed and reliability are crucial. Hard drives in servers have to constantly carry read/write tasks which increases the failure likelihood while, the financial cost of failure, whether it means data loss or just having the server down for sometime can be very high. In such situations, it is crucial to implement a system that minimizes such risks. However, as I mentioned before, for an individual user who does regular backups of his data, the level of risk and its consequences are much less significant. Now whether there is an actual benefit in sing a raid 0 for an individual, that's a personal matter depending on what tasks the user is using his system for.
