comment 2nd HDD as a RAID 1 Mirror on a Existing Ubuntu Server
There's standard tutorials on how to setup a raid, as mentioned in the previous posts, but nothing specific for the use case you described. I already listed the steps needed above. Also some on how to recover from a failed drive, but probably nothing specific to your use case.

comment 2nd HDD as a RAID 1 Mirror on a Existing Ubuntu Server
from your description, this is what I assume you have. 1. an OS drive 160GB, and 2 more hard drives which are 2GB each. It was my impression that you have some data on one of the 2GB drives that you want to keep but convert into a raid. Let's label these to avoid confusion. OS (/dev/sda), Drive with data (/dev/sdb), blank new drive (/dev/sdc). My suggestion was to start a new raid on /dev/sdc in degraded mode, mount sdb and copy the data to the newly degraded raid, and then re-add sdb to the newly created raid. Does that make sense?

On a side note, if you're creating a new raid setup, I would look into LVM (easier to grow the FS volume) and encryption is nifty too. There are guides online on raid + lvm + encryption you might want to look at. But the snippet above will get you on a simple raid and keep your data.

comment What permissions settings will make /var/www accessible without admin?
your webserver runs as www-data which is a limited user. In case someone can take advantage of a security exploit and get a shell access to the machine as user www-data. That user is very limited in what it can do. So it's a bit more work for them to go from www-data to say root. Which is why usually the apache process runs as www-data, your mail service runs as its own user etc. You're sandboxing the process a bit. Most of these users don't usually even have shell access. or a password set. (no password == no ssh access )

comment How do I clear all gnome shell notifications?
Right, the problem comes when you have 150 notifications. Nobody really wants to click 150 times to reset all of them. In my case I have google drive sync that notifies me every time it synced something. If i'm working on a file and it's saving, I'm constantly getting notifications of status changes.

comment Can't install .sh file
Update: So, then .run file is basically just an archive. Once extracted you have the a readme file with instructions. 1. copy or move mipsel-linux-uclibc to /opt 2. $ source SetUpEnv.sh 3. $ brh 4. $ ./go.sh ./go.sh runs fine for me, though I get a compilation error. Did you get this far? Your initial question was about running .sh file. At this point it's probably a missing lib or well actual card that I don't have to go with this drive or a combination of the two.

comment Can't install .sh file
I'll try to do this again now that I'm on normal internet once more. 1. drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWARE/Belkin/… 2. Click on the big Download Button 3. Clicked on the "External Mirror" link 4. Prompted to save file by the name listed above. I'm re-downloading it now, and I'll comment on the results
