Using RAID 1 for system and data - media server

Post by Deleted User 7758 »

Hi,
I'm building up a Raspberry Pi 4 as a replacement to a dead MacMini.
It will mostly be Plex and centrally stored picture library.
I have a dual bay 2.5 inch USB 3 enclosure and two 2Tb disks to use.
Options are I could use them in RAID 1 for some redundancy of data - would also be backed up elsewhere, or I could use them in JBOD and sync regularly between the two.
Which would be better?

Anyone else?
