    raid 0 splits your data into pieces and spreads it across all the drives in the array... this allows you to act with 2+ heads at once, effectively doubling, tripling, quadrupling etc. the read/write speeds... however because you split up your data, you increase the risk of data loss, because if one drive fails, all the data in the array will become corrupt (at least anything over the size of your stripe, which is normally about 64KB)

    Yowch... sounds kinda scary.

    Wait, can I change the size of my stripe?

    Like to 5MB or something? So any word docs I work on won't be lossed?

    Yes, you can choose a stripe size (Most use 64 or 128kb) you cannot nor would you want to use 5MB

    No data would be lost ever unless your RAID Crashed on you or a disk died

    Okay.

    What stripe size would you recommend? Or should I stick to defaults?
