Hmm HD RAID Tags: Hard Drives NAS / RAID HD Storage Last response: October 9, 2003 9:17 AM in Storage Share ironhell October 8, 2003 9:32:59 PM So I am hearing from a co worker of mine that RAID (the one where u setup as level 0) is actually "safer" than w/o RAID? But my argument is that if one HD goes bad, you lose ALL data!!! What do you think of this? Is there any validity in his claim?

RAID 1 (mirrored) is safer as the data is automatically backed up the second HDD, although it effectively halves the amount of storage space available to you.
