    I have a Precision 390 workstation using the Intel RAID for the SATA boot
    device. Is it safe to use the Intel software RAID with SSD drives? I
    have Windows XP installed.

    If the RAID is constantly doing background testing and writing to the drive,
    I assume that could create problems for an SSD, which has a limited number
    of writes available to it.

    I'm concerned about higher risk of data loss on an SSD if I don't use some
    kind of RAID.
