RAID provides these features by utilising more than one hard disk at a time, there are several variations of a RAID configuration referred to as levels. Each of these levels provide different performance and/or fault tolerance benefits. RAID configurations are commonly found in data critical applications.

This is a technique in which we can concatenate more than one disk together in a number of ways that can give us many types of storage options. We can also decide which type of storage feature is desired by choosing between the raid level. There are many Types of Raid levels 1)Linear Raid-Disks are appended linearly. If the space in the first disk get over than the data is written in the second disk 2)Raid 0(Striping)-In this type of raid the a file to be stored is broken down into chunks and each chunk is Placed over independent disk. This type of raids provides parallelism. i.e. Fast Read and write operations are performed. But the availabilty of each file is dependent on all the disk. If any one of the disk gets crashed or currupted than the entire data is Lost Replyhttp://www.geekinterview.com/question_details/25319 16/12/2011

And our OS installations are mostly done in the drive which is a FAT32 type drive and it is quite known that these files of the OS are VERY important and that anything done to these files can result in something bad. So inspite of this limitation why do people generally install the OS in a FAT32 drive? Reply Login to rate this answer.

John Wiggins Answered On : Oct 20th, 2011 RAID stands for REDUNDANT ARRAY of INDEPENDENT DRIVES. Under the raid system a group of hard drives are addressed as one storage unit. The data is redundantly (backup copies) stored in such a way that it is possible to recover all of the data even with the total failure of as many as two of the drives in the RAID. RAIDs are used where extremely large amounts of storage capacity and high reliability is required. Today most pre-recorded television programs are recorded and played back from RAID file servers.
