Solved Explanation of RAID Tags: NAS / RAID Storage Last response: July 18, 2010 2:29 AM in Storage Share Lmeow July 17, 2010 7:34:06 AM Could someone explain to me a few different RAID formations? (If that's what you call it) I understand RAID 0 is splitting half the data onto each disk so it does the transferring twice as fast, something like that, please correct me if I'm wrong but that is the basic outline. RAID 1 is mirroring all that you do onto another drive so if your main drive fails you still have all your information. Now I've hit a brick wall... at RAID 5, 10 and the others which I'm not going to ask for lol, seems way to complex (would be nice if you could translate it into simple language) I know RAID 10 is just 1+0, but what is RAID 5 or 1+0?

Horrible layout it has, but it does explain RAID quite well, and in language most people understand.
