  1. Hi all, Wonder if anyone could advise? Sorry, if I am in the wrong part of the forum I've got a newish MacPro Server with 4 HDs: 3 x 2TB, 1 x 1TB. At the moment the RAID volume is the 3 x 2TB, and the OS sits OUTSIDE on a separate HD. It all backs up onto a Drobo using Time Machine. Is it better to have the OS 'on' the RAID volume, or outside on a separate HD? My worry is being software RAID, if the OS HD dies so does my array, irretrievably. And to be honest I don't know of the Drobo mirror gives a bootable clone. Thanks for any help you can offer – am a newbie to RAID. All the best, Dave
