raid 5 reserves one drive for parity data
the partiy allows one drive to fail in the array and maintain operation
theres added overhead though to process the parity data
it also takes a substantially longer time to rebuild the array than say a raid 1 mirroring array
Someday you will die somehow and somethings going to steal your carbon
