    Some people just have a lot off pron! lol

    It acts as my home media server so everything sits on it backups, movies, series, music. It's also home to exhange and all the other usual server stuff. Everything is accessible all round the house gigabit hard wired or via WIFI for laptops

    But remember (hate to harp on about raid 1) that RAID 1 will repair itself as well and go on working if a drive fails...right?

    Any RAID level with redundency will carry on working until you replace the disk, then it'll replicate RAID data to the new disk.

    Yes (and this sounds daft - but it happens) but only after you have swapped out the bad drive, which means that you need to monitor the array's performance regularly - either at boot up or with application software.

    (It's not unknown for a RAID disk to fail but go unnoticed - until a second drive fails and the array comes tumbling down)
