I've been thinking of setting up an external enclosure for back up purposes. I was thinking of getting a 2 drive enclosure and setting up a concatinated volume. My understanding was that unlike RAID 0 the loss of one drive would still leave the data intact on the other drive. However I read that this is not true with Apples way of doing it. With Apples implementaion of JBOD if one disk goes down you lose the entire volume. I'm not concerned with the loss of performance compared to RAID 0 as I will only be using the external for back up purposes. I'd like to be able to span 2 disks into a single volume, but not if it means lossing one disk means I lose all my data.
