I've never done RAID before, so pardon if this is a silly question.
After having a lot of problems with my OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, I want to be prepared going forward. Is it possible to RAID 1 my OCZ Vertex with a spare HDD I have kicking around? If my OCZ fails (which I am 100% confident it will do again) I want to be able to continue on my other drive while restoring the SSD (or killing it with fire).
I'll second dans' comment: run a backup of your system daily, and establish restore points in case of failure. RAIDing a SSD to a HDD will slow down the SSD with all the writing to the HDD, and may cause a premature failure.
