I am planning to make a partition in my computer's hard drive.

I searched the internet for the procedure, and I was confused by the word RAID.

What does RAID 0-4 means and how do I configure them?

RAID or Redundant Array of Independent Disks is not in any way a backup solution although it can offer some degree of backup when it comes to hardware failures.

It does not however do anything if the system is virus infected, or if a bad driver has been installed. Instead, what RAID does is that it offers performance increase when it comes to disk reads or writes, and a protection if your hard disk fails.

There are several types of RAID that you can configure your system with:

  • RAID-0 which increases performance however, a failure in one drive will make you lose all the data on the array.
  • RAID-1 offers recovery in case of a hard disk failure, but there is no performance increase.
  • RAID-5 has the advantage of speed increase of your system’s performance plus the ability to recover if one of your drives fail, but you’ll lose some of your disk space.
