XOR (exclusive OR)

A Boolean operation that yields true if and only if one of its operands is true and the other is false. For some server operating systems, the exclusive OR is a Boolean operation in which the RAID-5 volume form of fault tolerance maintains an XOR of the total data to provide data redundancy. This is used to reconstruct missing data on a failed disk or sector from the remaining disks in the RAID-5 volume.
