I'd say that if you were worried about keeping your files from
corrupting, use RAID5.  What that does is write 3 bands across 3+ hard
drives, including a parity strip.  Using data from the surrounding
drives, and the parity strip, it can reconstruct bad data, even if a
whole hard drive fails (but not 2 drives)
