Intel Rapid Storage Technology RAID question

prophet001 asked
Last Modified: 2017-04-20
  I was wondering if anyone could give some input on choosing between RAID 1 and Recovery volumes. I have two 6 TB disks that are going to be used to store files and low priority programs. All I need is redundancy since they are rotating drives. RAID 1 would work fine for uptime but Recovery is also an option that will use RAID 1 on demand it would seem.

Is there a reason to select one over the other? Any performance benefits or detraction from either approach?

Thanks for the help.
