New to Trusted Platform Module. So TPM 1.2 or TPM 2.0? And what about RAID 1 drives?

Hello I am rebuilding my AMD system after a motherboard failure and thought to add Trusted Platform Module to this new build. I see there is a TPM 1.2 version available for my motherboard. I am a Fedora user primarily. I have Windows 10 but basically just so I can use Windows if I need to.

I am reading and learning about Trusted Platform Module for the first time, and so far, I don't like 2.0 for the possible "Big Brother" aspect so I am feeling okay with ordering the TPM 1.2 hardware.

This time around I am spending for RAID 1 storage configuration and I bought a hardware controller.

My two part question is " 1: Is it okay to stick with TPM 1.2 and 2: can I replace a failed drive in a RAID 1 configuration if I encrypt and it uses TPM 1.2?

Thank You

(1) For comparison using tpm, check the following data for selection.

In the case of tpm I think it is well explained on the web. For security reasons, you can increase the security of your connection through your firewall and security settings, and if necessary, encrypt the disk itself. As there are so many choices for security, these security issues are used in combination.

(2) Please use raid 1 because raid0 may have a problem with recovery. raid0 can be quick access and extend storage capability, but I do not recommend it if you need stability.

(3) I asked the same question for one. raid1 can be restored in case of disk problems. However, it is not perfect if it is a soft raid setting, and if it is important equipment, it is set and used by hardware raid card. I usually use raid5 or higher to apply the system, and more stable if I use raid 10

(4) If it is expensive, it can be economically managed by storing it on another storage device using an unused computer, and it is also desirable in terms of resource management. We do not have to stick to the latest equipment, and if you simply use a Fedora server to configure a file server, you can replace expensive equipment at a fraction of the cost.

(5) If you store valuable information over a long period of time, you can easily recover information in the event of an accident by installing a separate backup device in addition to the basic storage device. Likewise, important data is stored on a separate server, and such servers may even separate the network and power.

My bad I did mean RAID 1. Also pardon the double posting as I thought my first post was rejected. I don't think I understand what I need to do with tpm very well. I am watching videos and reading. Thank You for the link. I am doing a crash course here :) Yeah, I am unsure how I am to use that add on.

I will update if need be. I am trying to figure out how to do this. It's not all that easy to learn quickly. I will look into RAID hardware. Edit. Picked up 2 RAID controllers. One to use and one in case the first dies. Still sorting out TPM. I have a collection of programs I have written over the past two decades. So far only a backup drive has ever failed but I need better for my piece of mind and RAID 1 plus a backup seems reasonable. TPM seems to work with LUKS
