First Time Raid / Backup Questions

A single level RAID0 is striping only and a multiple level RAID15 is a combination of mirroring (1) and parity check (5).

Keep in mind that disk failures often occur at inconvenient moments, on a weekend when the shops are closed and you can't get a replacement disk, or when you have a It does not know it is garbage. Thread Status: Not open for further replies.

Thanks. I was thinking about switching the two drives and use the WD on the SATA adapter and the SSD on the motherboard just to see what would happen. I thought that TM could only backup a working computer - might you elaborate a bit if you drag and drop, or maybe use another program front the archived backups?

Time Machine doesnt offer the option of spanning drives. My laptop is backed up with TIME MACHINE to a portable drive. Impossible for their search engine and the data they collect to be lost. Another strategy that I have heard is to have two backup target disks and switch them every week (for example), so that if either one is lost or fails, you've lost

Seems like they must be behind it to say that.

I would like to point out that there are software and hardware RAID solutions with hardware being the preferred and safer option. Maybe there's something I don't understand in your article "NEVER use Raid for a back-up".

Win7 is partialy aware and turns of defragmentation if you connect an SSD. If you loose the drive, the RAID has to read 100% of the remaining drives even if there is no data on portions of the drive. I simply buy 2 at the end of every year.

Possibly the read speed is enhanced in raid1, because of combined reads if the ICHR10 or Marvell support that.

Does it automatically know which files are new and where they belong?

This would give me a 2x 500GByte storage, maybe not ideal for a BOOT Device, also quite big. (A SSD is, now a days, probably, cheaper and easier in both setup Real hardware RAID controllers all use their own IOP (I/O Processor) and cache (ever wondered why these hardware controllers are expensive?).There are two kinds of software RAID's. It will be the only way to guarantee its safety. SSD or not, always have a good backup!!!

PerformanceOpponents of RAID will often say that any modern disk is fast enough for video editing and they are right, but only to a certain extent. No time to make more elegant solutions.Thanks again for your article, sorry for my skipover. Reply Zainal Arifin says: August 2, 2016 at 2:31 am Thank you. The image files from each year are exported from Lightroom as a catalog to separate externals for off site.
