Did you know that most "oh my god" RAID failures happen during the
reconstruction of a failed drive?
.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
No raid solves any backup problem.
