Exclamation RAID Help Please

Well I think want to run a raid 1 setup.
but should i just keep it just the 2 disks or should i boot off a single drive then do a raid 1 for the backup files (3 discs)?

I am also going to be running windows 7

Both ways are totally fine. The seperate boot disk would give you more partitioning flexibility and could possibly simplify your backup routine but there's not much to choose between them.

There are in order of increasing severity: lies, darn lies, statistics, and computer benchmarks. - diskinfo man page
