  1. So I'm purchasing wd 10k raptors soon. I want to go for raid zero but all this stuff about losing data. I'm sure this makes me 4 times more likely to lose stuff. Are their any programs that would automatically back up my data onto another drive by schedule?

    Acronis TrueImage works well.

    What size Raptors are you going to get? If they're the 150GB version, you could get a 750GB Seagate as your backup drive.

    Regards :)

    You could always go Raid 1+0 or Raid 5. this would create a parity on 1 drive for fault protection. Or you could get a 750 and back up there. But remember the more info you got the longer it will take to back up, even if you got raptors and a 750.
