I’d like to expand the HD capacity of my iMac G5, but I’m reluctant to replace the internal HD. I’d also like to improve the reliability of my TimeMachine HD – I’ve had one of those fail on me.
So I’m thinking about adding two RAID arrays; a Striped Set for additional file capacity and a Mirrored Set for TimeMachine. I’m looking for suggestions on whether I should be considering packaged RAID hardware solutions, or if I would be better off having individual drives and using Disk Utility to implement the RAID sets.
