I dunno why I got another 250GB drive internally, not as though a 500GB one was double the price, even if it was...

That drive is exclusively for music, my FLACs are eatig it fast. Only 40GB left.

80GB in laptop + three external drives (80GB, 320GB, 500GB)

Somewhere around 1.5TB in the workstation, another 3TB in the HTPC, and close to 1TB in the server... I can't connect all my drives at the same time any more, got way too many ~250GB drives :O

160gb in my MBP but it is connected to a 750gb + 600gb + 500gb + 160gb external HD's so in total I have a 2.17tb which is still not enough for me...need that new MacPro to come out soon so I can put 4tb + my externals in it.

320x2 RAID 0
400x2 RAID 0

got it all to hold datasets for my thesis. Now I'm sporting 1TB of free space.

80gb+250gb+750gb+ext. 2x250gb+ext. 500gb=2080gb.
Externals are mostly backups so I count it 1,1tb..

Isn't it safer to run a configuration with data redundancy and parity, eg RAID 5 or even at least RAID 1?

RAID 0 is used for absolute performance but has no tolerance for data corruption or disk failure. If you're looking for data security, you should be mirroring your set-up in RAID 1. I don't think RAID 5 or 6 would really be practical for personal use though as they require at least 3-4 HDs.

It is. Running RAID 0 doubles the odds of failure on any given day, whereas mirroring (RAID 1) squares the odds, from, for example, 1:500 to 1:250000.

That's really bad. If you have so much free space then you should be using RAID 1 minimum. Or sell everything and rebuy with RAID 5 in mind, you still get the read performance of RAID 0 and the decrease in write performance is neglible in most usage scenarios.

4x 500gb RAID 5 - 1.37TB storage on my ReadyNAS
1x 300gb usb
1x 320gb usb
2x 100gb 2.5" usb
100gb internal hdd on laptop.

amazing when I think back to how well I ran on a single 1.2gb hdd just 10 years ago. And how happy I was when I dropped $100 to get a 5.4gb hdd at CompUSA. And now you get nearly 100x that amount of storage for the same price at Fry's nowadays.

450 GB total in the pc right now, the 250 is pretty much full. I also have a 160GB external.

Isn't having a back-up effectively having a manual RAID 1?
I have 2 in fact, an old 160GB external thats still full of 75% of my music.

Is it also not dependant on buying replacement drives faster? Like if one dies, you're relying on a single drive until you get the replacement.
