Re: Laptop hard drive vs. Desktop hard drive

Sorry I wasn’t clear I already have a NAS device for backups. I want I setup a Mirror Raid like I have currently have in my 7 year old system that has been on 24/7/365. The problem is my system is getting old and don’t know how much it has left? The Dell mentioned in the OP has a hardware Raid you set via the Bios. So all I’d need to do is configure the Bios and install Windows and the Intel Storage Manager.

So my question is if I use Notebook hard drives (to save space in the case) would they provide the same durability and uptime as their full size counterparts?
