Solved will raid 10 increase drive failure Tags: storage Last response: June 18, 2013 9:29 AM in Storage Share catshannon June 18, 2013 9:06:11 AM will raid increase drive failure, or is it the average failure of the HDD and raid wont push the HDD anymore than normal? More about : raid increase drive failure Reply to catshannon aatje92 a b G Storage June 18, 2013 9:11:22 AM It won't push it more, but in Raid 0 with two disks for example if one disk brakes you lose all data, so you have twice the chance of failure. raid 10 should be safe to use though.

I understand that you will lose the data on both but is that the only reason it is labelled as unreliable or do they add risk of physical drive fail Reply to catshannon Related resources Does overclocking increase risk of raid 10 array failure? - Forum Catasrophic Drive Failure of 3 drives on RAID 10 - Forum RAID10 3 drive failure - Forum RAID 10 drive failure - Forum 2 drives predicting failure in a RAID 10 - Is this the best way to handle this situation? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I understand that you will lose the data on both but is that the only reason it is labelled as unreliable or do they add risk of physical drive fail It's the only reason. I edited my post, seems like you want to use Raid 10, and thats safe to use anyway. Once again there's no added risk to physical damage . Reply to aatje92 Jim_L9 a b G Storage June 18, 2013 9:21:27 AM You have an increased risk of a physical drive failing compared to 2 drives in RAID 0 or 1 because you have twice as many drives. If you lose the "correct" 2 drives in RAID 10 you won't lose any data from the failures. Reply to Jim_L9 Best solution drtoast June 18, 2013 9:29:21 AM Its the same chance of failure, just with more drives there are more chances. It doesnt strain the drives any more than normal.
