Any help would be greatly appreciated More about : redundancy Dereck47 a c 523 G Storage January 14, 2013 5:58:34 PM Redundancy is like having "run-flat" tires on a car. If one tire gets a flat you can still drive your car for another 50 miles or so; far enough to get home or to a repair shop. Having a RAID array (except for RAID-0) provides redundancy. If a drive fails you can continue functioning (with reduced performance) until you get the faulty drive replaced. m 0 l Stacey58 January 14, 2013 6:51:27 PM Thank you so much.
