WD Raid drive in non raid machine

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of getting one of THESE (WD RE2 WD5001ABYS) to go in a non raid machine, i'm looking at this as i want a WD drive and the 5 yr g'tee appeals to me as well, are there any problems running this "Raid" drive in a NON raid machine ie; just used to store data (mp3's/avi/dvd images etc)?

Should work fine. The shorter error recovery cycles may ultimately hurt data integrity should you encounter errors, but generally these days when most drives start encountering errors, they're dead ducks anyway.... :P so I wouldn't worry about it.
