I have a HP ProLiant server with two SCSI drives. I wanted to set up a RAID 1 array but the RAID configurator only allowed me a RAID 0 or a RAID 1+0 array. When either of my drive fails can I recover the data upon RAID 1+0 configuration?

Yes, the RAID 1+0 configuration with 2 disks only behaves like a RAID 1 configuration

Thank you for your help:) – Hiddin Nov 25 '11 at 11:39
No prob. The advantadge of this is that you can easily upgrade to a 1+0 array just by adding the extra disks – jesusbolivar Nov 25 '11 at 11:51
