RAID for computers is nothing like the bug killer. RAID is a method which uses hard drives for redundancy.

With a RAID 1, you have 2 hard drives. Each one is an exact mirror of the other. This is usually done to the C: drive (system drive). If one fails, you can still recover using the other.

RAID 0 and RAID 5 are just about the same. It is called "striping" (stripeing?). For a RAID 5 you need at least 3 drives. Your computer will write data to 2 of them at the same time while the 3rd gets what is called "parity". Parity can be used to recreate the "array" (as it is called) if it ever gets broken or corrupted. RAID 5 is usually used for Data files.

I hope I did not confuse you. Read up a little more on the RAID as it can be very helpful. I run a RAID 1 on my computer.
