I am looking into a more redundant solution to my home server.
I know raid is "not" a backup, but I am looking into a raid 5 solution for these reasons.
- I would be very annoyed if I lost my data, but it wouldn't be the end of the world
- I like the space efficiency of raid 5
I have ubuntu 11.04 installed on a single hard drive and don't much care about my setup and config (easy to reinstall).
If I setup a raid 5 array with the disk utility, and then my system crashes, or I have to reinstall, can I reload my raid 5 array on a new system? (fresh install)
Thanks for your help!
