Seeming that Raid5 needs 3 disks at a minimum you do not have any room or drives for failure. It has nothing to switch over to and if any one of the three drives fails the entire array will fail. If you have four or five drives you can potentially loose one or two drives without the array being totally offline - slow maybe but your data would still be available. I would use a raid0 configuration instead/.
