My setup has 2x IDE 80gb Maxtor HDDs and 2x SATA 200gb Maxtor DiamondMax16 HDDs. I'm using it due to massive quantity of sample libraries.
My question is: Is it worthy to use those 2 SATA as RAID 0 (stripe)?
Some friends told me that they couldn't use it for more than 3 months before it crash and they lose all their data. I don't know also if those HDDs are good quality, but I'm don't want to risk my data.
Also, what would you recommend to prevent system or HDD failure? Using a good no-break, some line filters, etc?
