I know there are tons of threads on external hard drives. However, these threads rarely discuss (and not fully) the best RAID 1 enclosures. I am no expert on the topic, but I believe that a RAID 1 mirrored enclosure is perfect for my needs. I have all of my media on an external disk, but I need to ensure that it this disk goes bad I won't lose everything. As far as I understand it, if one disk of a RAID 1 mirrored setup goes bad, you are still good to go as long as the other disk is fine. What are your recommendations for good RAID 1 enclosures? I would like to get a 1 TB setup, cost permitting. If it costs too much, I would go down to 750 GB. Is it possible to buy two external drives and combine them into a RAID 1 setup through software? Thanks for your help.
