Aploies for the Late Reply gechurch,

Thank you very much for the infomation provided, that clears up alot of questions i had.

I have a total of 6 drives in my server. 4 conected in the drive bays, plus another 2 in the ODD drive (i have a 5.25 to 2x 3.5 caddy)

Unfortantly due to an oversight of mine, and as correctly stated by you, the raid controller, only allows Raid 0 and 1.

So the way i have configuered it now is:

2x 250gb in RAID 1 for the OS
4x 500gb in Software RAID 5 for storage

1x 2TB External Hardrive for Backups (incrimental daily and full backup every 2 weeks)
