    Have two SansDigital external towers each with separate Highpoint controller cards. One unit is set up as JBOD. Need advice whether I should install second unit as JBOB or RAID5 with spare, or RAID10 with spare. I have five SATA III Constellation SATA enterprise drives to install in second unit.
    I want to make sure I have backups to restore in the event of crashes on two internal drives C: (SSD 256 with OS only) and D: (SATA 2TB DATA only and Dell Recovery). On unit one I use JBOD for daily backup of C: on a SSD 256GB drive (G) and backup of D: on SATA III drive. I use Acronis 2013 with Plus Pack. THANK YOU.
