"no the consequences aren't higher, becasue if a hard drive fails you still lose stuff either way. the chances are higher in a RAID becasue you have two hard drives that can fail instead of just one."
You're an idiot....
Consequence = amount lost (2 >1!)
HIGHER CHANCE = more LIKELY to fail...
Your logic is totally backwards. Two drives doesn't make a crash iminent, just more devastating if it DOES happen. That does mean great consequences...
