I'd say we need a revolution, but I'm even more terrified of the most eager revolutionaries than I am of the lizards in charge.

I just don't know what to do anymore.

Having RAID on the drive itself mostly defeats the purpose of RAID (excepting RAID 0, but even that has issues with this approach). RAID is best for combating downtime due to hardware failure. By sticking both "disks" of a RAID-1 on one drive, you have no recourse if one of those "disks" fails. You can't swap out half a drive to let it rebuild on a good 'disk'.

I was thinking more like RAID 5 or other models with redundancy, just in the same housing. HEY! don't be stealing my idea lol.

If at first you don't succeed, you must be a programmer.
