Ok, from what i understand is to use 2 HDD units and RAID writes to one and the other one mirrors the information so as to have an extra copy. Is this right?
Please give details or list a link so I can read, thanks.
Depends on how you have it setup, mirror is a common practice in the server enviroments. raid0 is seen in desktop enviroments a lot which is great for load balancing hard drives but provides no protection if one drive crashes, then you lose all data. There is all sorts of different setups you can do, that link will help explain them out.
Thanks guys, I actually learned a lot last night at my brothers house. One of our friends that rents a room there put together a new computer last night. Another one of our friends is very fluent in computers and I was able to ask him a bunch of questions.
