Dealing with a RAID is risky, I know from experience. So routine backups are essential. But, one really needs a reason to want to set up a RAID ... in your work, would you ever need a RAID, either 0 or 1?

I work on Photoshop files that have grown to 1.7GB ... that's when I wasn't paying attention. But they are often up in the 800MB to 1.2GB range, and there's nothing I can do about those.

I also do video editing. If I didn't need to take the risk with RAIDs, I wouldn't. But it makes a big performance difference for me.
