well, you mean on RAID5 then, coz there's probably no math in
   reconstructing a RAID1.
   Why would the math on SATA be less reliable than on SCSI???
   Where d'you read that anyway??

Did you know that most "oh my god" RAID failures happen during the

.Especially on SATA as the non-recoverable-bit-error math is so much
easier to run into.

I think..that on a 500G drive, there are enough bits to read/write
that mathematically you could run into a double-drive failure every
time you have to recover.  Although, statistically it wouldnt happen
every time.

No raid solves any backup problem.


I've been using those Intel RAID with Windows for a couple of years now and
it really helped solve my backup problem.
I think this is simply great, no worries of data loss anymore (at least
coming from hardware failure).
