    Hello,

    I am planning to buy a Clevo laptop with several mass storage devices. I am thinking about an SSD.M2 for the system and two HDDs in a RAID 1 configuration for the data.

    Question 1: does the RAID 1 configuration slow down a lot data reading/writing? My main uses will be music production and live music. But maybe with SSDs it's not an issue?
    Question 2: if at some point I want to stop using the disks in a RAID 1 configuration (to gain additional storage space for instance), it is possible to modify the configuration without loosing the data?
    Question 3: what happens when one of the RAID's disks is broken?

    Thank you in advance.

    1. Probably but not too significantly

    2. Yes and no, if you bypass the raid controller and wipe one of the disks to break the set data should remain on the untouched disk

    3. Broken set but Data should remain on the working drive
