I have used Raid 5 in server 2003 for many years and never lost data despite some horrific disasters.
I am now building a home PC and was intending to use Win7 Pro however it does not have the facility for raid, as could be achieved even in XP.
The PC will have AM3 and will need to be 64 bit to access the memory. Discs are SAT3 and boot disc an SSD I'd appreciate input as to whether it is better to go for a hardware raid in which case recommendations would be appreciated or if there is another solution.
