HI there,

hope my email find you well, i recently order a server with below configuration 

1x Quad-Core i5-2500 3.3GHz, 6M Cache

then ask from my COLOCATION to install FreeBSD 8.2 or 8.3 with RAID 1, after many times of fail in installation from colocation they said that we have problem with RAID 1.we suggest them to play with different kind of RAID like RAID 5 and they said as our requested server only have 2 HDD, its not possible to set up RAID 5.

now they said us that the only way for having backup of DATA in this condition is set up a scheduled task to put back up of data in the second HDD .

now i really need to know if there is a only way for having data back up in this condition or you have better idea according to your experience.also if its the only way , would it be a good level of data security ?

looking forward to hear from your side soon.
