Can I set my computer to RAID 1? Tags: NAS / RAID Computers Storage Hard Drives Last response: September 3, 2013 3:33 PM in Storage Share DeanG117 September 3, 2013 7:04:04 AM I have a 2TB HDD with a 30GB SSD SATA cache drive this is set to RAID 0 however, data protection in case of drive failure is more important to me then increased performance can I set this to RAID 1? will that mean I only have 30GBs of storage if I do that?

Your data can still be deleted, corrupted, hit with viruses. To protect data you need to do backups. With raid, you need 2 or more drives, and usually they need to be the same size. I would get a secone 2TB drive, and put the OS on the SSD, and set the 2 HDD's in raid 1. m 0 l popatim a c 906 G Storage September 3, 2013 3:33:03 PM if your ssd is the cache drive you do not have a raid 0, you have a 2tb drive with a 30gb ssd cache. Raid must be enabled in the bios to do this so we can see why your're confused. You could raid 0 or 1 the two drives together but you'd would not get what you expect, either a 30gb raid1 or a 60gb raid0. LOL That's be a pretty big waste of your big harddrive. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources computer hangs when building RAID1 (mirror) set in SiI3112..
