Very bad idea - 4 x Disk as RAID 0 means you have 4 times the chances to
have a hardware fault that causes the loss of ALL of the data on the
If you have 4 x DISKS as RAID 5, you only get 1.2TB, but any single
drive can fail and you don't have any loss of data, but it will run slow
with a faulted drive.
