Raid 5, Raid 1+0 & Raid 0+1

  • The minimum number of disks in a RAID 5 set is three (two for data and one for parity). 
  • The maximum number of drives in a RAID 5 set is in theory unlimited, although your storage array is likely to have built-in limits. 
  • However, RAID 5 only protects against a single drive failure.
