I wanted to try RAID on my PC. I have no clue which one is better. I read PC Magazine September 2008 edition in their test PC (or DreamPC whatever) RAID0 with 2x Western Digital Velociraptor 300GB 10000RPM and RAID5 on 3x Samsung 1TB. SO here is my questions:
I read that RAID0 is not safe but I think this is where Acronis True Image can help, right, or not? Can Acronis True Image 11 Home backup and restore RAID? I can’t seem to find this info.
I read the 3x Samsung 1TB in RAID5 can make total 2TB? So the other 1TB will be a backup incase it fails?
Lastly, this RAID0 for OS and RAID5 for data a good setup for average users?
