    I've been googling a lot and am finding conflicting information about this subject. Can a 2006 Mac Pro do a mirrored RAID of two striped RAIDs internally without the RAID card? I know it can do one or the other, just not sure if it can do both. Some sites say yes, some say no.

    Thanks!

    I'm fairly certain you can, I believe disk utility can do a 1+0 soft RAID from what I have read.

    In theory I would imagine it should be possible since OS X supports RAID0/1 modes separately. I don't know if it supports RAID-ing members that are already in an array though.

    Maybe some one with a Mac Pro can verify this?

    OS X supports 0/1/10 and JBOD without the need of a RAID card.
