Ever try to use the "search" function?
That's where I got this pic.
Thanks to Rower_CPU for posting it earlier.
According to a recent post and URL -Are you referring to 1+0...striping and mirroring? I've never heard of RAID level 10 before...
I would assume that best practice would be to do what you said. [/B]

According to a recent post and URL -
Level 5 is the most popular one for big operations. It is more complex. It uses 3 or more drives (often up to 12, and even more). If n is the number of drives, it writes 1/(n-1) of the data to each drive except for one. So if there are 12 drives, it writes 1/11th of the data to each of 11 drives. The last drive is called a "parity drive," and it contains nothing but parity data.
Level 10 is a lot like 0+1, but it has no limitation on the number of drives. It is a mirror of two big stripes.
