how can files get lost by itself with RAID 0? and why?
sorry for my stupid question but i really don't know any thing about RAID
Hard drives can fail just simply because hard drives can fail. There could be a manufacturing fault or really anything. Same reasons while a single hard drive would fail in a computer. Only now, since you have at least 2 hard drives in this RAID 0 configuration, if either of them fail without a proper backup, you will lose everything. You lose everything because without Drive A's data, Drive B's data is worthless and vise-versa. Since data is stripped on both drives to lower save/seek times, they are worthless without each other.
