RAID 0 or 1

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
If I am interested in setting up a RAID 0 or 1 configuration will all my data be lost when I do this?

As of now I only have one HDD, but say I buy another one and want to configure it to a RAID 0 configuration, would I have to reinstall my OS to boot it up in a RAID 0 config.? or is there another way to do this?

another question. so if I set up in a RAID 1 config. could I back these files up to an external hard drive? or it would it would not be able to read the info because it is split into two different drives?

just buy an SSD it will seem like your in RAID 0 with 3 HDD

YES, you can back up anything and will be able to read.
RAID 0 = 2 same drives working as one
RAID 1 = 2 same drives, 2 copies

RAID 0 = Fastest performance, zero redundancy. (A failure with one of the drives would cause a catastrophic failure across the entire array).

RAID 1 = Faster (read) performance with redundancy.
