I just bought a new server (it's in the mail) that has a few Raid options. 0,1,5,10

I am currently using RAID 1 (2 disk mirroring) with my current server. This has been working quite well.

The default for the new server is RAID 5 (3 disk)

Should I stick with the RAID 1 or should I switch the the RAID 5?

Thanks all!

If what you're doing is working, I would leave it alone.

Leave it at RAID 5.
