... or not to RAID.

Not only did your latest RAID attempt fail, but I have corrupted your main disk. Should I corrupt it more? (Y/N)

After a couple of attempts to rebuild the RAID1 on my computer, I have come away with a few more grey hairs, and a renewed resolve not to bother trying again. Both drives are working now, albeit non-RAID, and I think that I shall keep it that way. I am backing up the whole system to the second drive, and I am going to schedule Windows to do regular backups to the second drive. If I lose the first drive, I will have a full backup on the second. If I lose the second drive, I just need to replace that and create another backup. It's not as geeky as setting up a RAID would be, but it does the job I suppose.
