I'm thinking of purchasing a Thunderbolt drive to both work off of and also do some long term storage on. (The WD Velociraptor Duo, specifically.)
My problem though, is that the majority of 'speedy' Thunderbolt drives are RAID0 and I've always been paranoid about running anything in RAID0.
Switching to RAID1 sounds okay, but it means working off of it wouldn't be all that fast. Am I right to be so paranoid about having a RAID0 external containing my work, old photos, etc?
I'd certainly backup the important files, but I can't shake the feeling that an external RAID0 Thunderbolt setup seems like a bad idea.
