    I read the following in the "Guide for installing and configuring RAID":

    Question 1: Is this the normal setup?

    I would like to setup RAID 1 with just 2 hard drives having the OS (partitioned) on the drive so it gets mirrored.
    Question 2: Is it ok to setup this way?

    Question 3: What would be the point to have a 3rd HDD installed with just the OS that isn't on the RAID?

    Thanks

    Why do you want raid?
    It's not much good for the home user, more for business using a server where downtime is an issue.
    If you are thinking this is a backup solution Raid or any flavour IS NOT BACKUP!!!!!!!

    I'm inquiring about RAID 1 for a server. And not for a backup solution.

    Does anyone have information regarding my questions above?

    Thanks
