    I plan to use the RAID 1 for my Computer. Do i need special hard disk to support RAID or just normal hard disk? Do both hard disk's capacity must be same?

    Anybody can provide info?

    any harddrive will do. and ideally both harddrives should be identical. otherwise it will only be as fast as your slowest harddrive and as big as your smallest.

    Yeah, get two of the exact same hard drive. Thats the best way to do it. Also try to get a fairly recent drive as the last thing you want is for one to go bad, and then you cant get a new one as it isnt made anymore
