I had a Samsung Evo Pro SSD drive as my System drive. When it failed I found out that my backups images were bad. Major pain ensued.

I was thinking about getting a second SSD and configuring them as mirrors but Samsung said this was not a recommended configuration.

I want to go back to a mirrored System Disk but I was wondering if hybrid disks might be able to be configured as a mirror.

If it is possible would the performance improvement be noticeable. Would it be worth it?

I have Intel Raid on my 2008 Gigabyte Motherboard

Thanks in advance
