I need advice on the best setup ito RAID or any other suggestion based on the following:
- Faster Windows 7 startup and application load times
- Frequent Photoshop use
- Imperative that I don't lose family photos due to failures/accidental deletes etc
RAID 0+1 (correct?) I think is an option but that requires a lot of HDDs? Please advise as I have never setup RAID before.
I'm still trying to decide which is best for me.
What I've read about ssds they sound excellent ito speed, but too expensive for me at this point.
Maybe I should go for the two raptors in raid 0, and keep two separate disks in raid 1, I don't even know if it can be done like that. Or raid 5 maybe? I suppose I would sacrifice speed for redundancy.
