raid 0


I'm confused by what some people have said about raid 0. Does raid 0 cause a drive to physically damage sooner than it would normally would (decrease lifespan)?

Raid0 puts part of the file on one drive and part on the second(assuming 2 drives in array). This allows the file to be written in roughly 1/2 the time. So if you have two older slow drives (say 40meg/sec) you can set them up as raid0 and still record live video at roughly 70meg/sec. It does not decrease the lifespan of the drive, but it does double(2 drives at a given failure rate) your chances of a failure ( if either drive fails you loose everything).
