Safety-wise of my data, what's better RAID 10 or RAID 5? Also what do you think of Buffalo equipment? If the software or hardware controllers in the Buffalo enclosure were to go bad would I lose all data under a RAID 10 or RAID 5 setup? Would I lose data if it was a RAID 1 (mirror) setup? If data safe under RAID 1 if software or hardware controllers went bad then I would get an external HDD that used RAID 1.
