    4 2tb Hdd or 2 4 tb Hdd for storage Raid

    Hi I am looking to invest in a raid solution, but I dont know which one is better a 4 x 2tb raid 10 or 2 x 4tb raid 1 please? Obviously 4 tb is going to cost a little more but not by much. Any advice is appreciated

    Best for what ?

    Performance, available space, future expansion, cost ? What are you priorities and why are you looking at RAID ?

    I'm guessing it's so that you don't lose anything given any failure??

    RAID 10 has slightly better performance than RAID 1, but is less recoverable if the controller fails, rather than a disk.

    RAID 1 is probably your best option, if any disk fails then just replace it, if the controller fails then both disks can be used standalone to recover data!

    I guess, firstly, what are your reasons for wanting to use a RAID setup?
