What do you mean about deleting files?

RAID is for keeping the computer running if up to the supported number of hard drives dies. It isn't a backup system. A file deleted off a RAID array disappears as completely as a file deleted off a single disk.

Something to keep in mind if the intent in using a RAID was to try to provide a backup arrangement.

Thanks for the information. I've never heard anyone say that RAIDs can magically recover deleted files, but I will keep that in mind.
