OK, so i have a tricky one. 
I have some data that i want to secure across 5 usb drives, but i want the data to only be accessible if 3 or more drives are connected. 
This is proving very difficult, i've been playing around with raid and what not, but having a hard time. 
Anyone got some ideas?

Hrm.. RAID 6 may work for what you are trying to do.


RAID 6 requires at least 4 drives and has a fault tolerance of 2 drives
