Hi with two drives I would recommend a Mirror (raid 1) if you had 3 or more then i would do a Raid 5. There are performance differences on the raid types,
raid 0 with 2 drives is faster than raid 5, but no redundancy just one bigger drive,
Raid 1 (mirror is great, but you sacrafice drive space.)
Raid 5 allows redundacy and space, but you need min 3 drives for that.
