Erroneus read data cannot be corrected in any way, so that's all in the 
game. And that only corrupts a few files while a complete hard disk 
crash just looses you entire info. And if I understand you correctly, 
RAID1 *does* protect you againt that. Moreover the CRC checks on hard 
disk makes it report an error before it get's the chance of reading the 
wrong info.

Hmm,  I think I want a RAID in my new PC.
