RAID vs SAFE terminology

Specs: Windows XP, 3.2 GH, 2.0GB
After escaping from near fatal drive issue with critcal data, I decided to get a RAID via external encloure (which is switchable for various types of RAID). What I want is RAID-1 (mirroring). I get the enclosure and the switch settings are for: JBOD, FAST, SAFE, SAFE33, SAFE50, GUI and BIG (notice, not one of those options even looks like a variation of the word RAID). I know what JBODs are, have found out about SAFE33 and SAFE50, and I'm not interested in those. Which of those settings is RAID-1 (or for that matter, what are each of those other settings)

Then you want safe only.

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

Here's what I found:

JBOD = Just a Bunch Of Disks
BIG = spanning (all drives concatenated into one large virtual drive)
SAFE 33 = 33% SAFE / 66% BIG
SAFE 50 = 50% SAFE / 50% BIG
