RAID 3 vc RAID 1

Specs: SBS 2003, Dual Xeon/4gb

Just started working for a company and was wondering why their old IT technician would have a RAID 3 on their server as apposed to RAID 1?

If the disk fails in RAID 3 will they loose a big proportion of their data? Also the size of the disk available to the OS is 150GB(approx), if this is the case doesn't that mean that we don't need anything sophisticated?

Can't say. Every method is a trade off of some factor.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Jefro, same article I read earlier. Seems like RAID 3 is better than RAID 1 but has fallen out of use.

All arrays should be backed up anyway.
