But it is true. If 1 disk in the array fails and you are using RAID 0 then you lose it all. With little chance of recovering your files.
Yes, but anyone relying strictly on RAID 0 for a backup solution is obviously risk-taking. I am not saying to do that, in any earlier post or now. As I said, my instructor uses three different types of RAID (0,1, and 5; RAID 5 especially, because if one drive goes down you are still ok). PLUS he does backups to tape. His reasons as explained to us made sense.
Again, I am no expert - but I do pay attention
. I think that some people are missing here is that RAID by itself is not a backup solution. Backups are backup solutions. RAID just keeps things going. If the system does go down, you still have your data backed up with the tapes.
