Yep, it will happen. That is because the information is split between two drives. If you have it all on one drive and something happens you may be able to recover some of your information. I am not saying you will lose everything I am saying you will need an expert to recover it and they still may not be able to. If in RAID 1 you have the OS corrupted a coached novice can use common programs to recover data. I would believe it would be safer and less complicated to use 1 drive with a large cache (16Mb). I believe from what I understand you would better off investing in more RAM than a RAID controller and ultra-high speed (10k or 15k) hard drives.
im new to computers so i dont know too much but ive heard about putting harddrives in RAID 0 to so things can run much faster and i was wondering which would be faster two 7,200 rpm drives in RAID 0 or a single 10,000 rpm drive
also ive read that its somewhat dangerous to use RAID 0 because data can be lost on both drives if one gets messed up, i never had a hard drive issue before so do comments of RAID 0 being dangerous not really apply?

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
