If your in RAID 0 then any disk failure will result in total data

Just to emphasize the point you were subtly making there: with two drives
in RAID 0 configuration, you are twice as likely to have a drive failure,
and since data is striped across both drives, you are twice as likely to
lose data. It's not only "zero data protection", it's even worse than that.
