http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a beginner question about using software raid on Ubuntu and what the smartest way is to build the hardware for a home-file-server. My plan is to have a server with one system disk(SSD 60GB) and 3-6 2TB disks in a software raid 5 or 6 or 10(haven’t decided yet...) using mdadm. So my idea is to not include the SSD drive in any raid, and just run it standalone with Ubuntu server. Anyhow, let’s say that I create a raid5 with four disks. After a awhile the SSD crash(as I probably will do after a couple of years). What will then happen with my raid 5? Will I be able to buy a new “s (Hardware)
