Need to reformat after configuring drives to Raid 0
I have just bought a second raptor hard drive for my samples. I wish to run the 2 raptor drives in Raid 0 configuration (on a P4C800-E deluxe mb)
Does anyone know if I will have to reformat and reload XP after I configure my drives to Raid 0 ?
Re: Need to reformat after configuring drives to Raid 0
I guess at a 99.9% the answer is yes. It would be better having the OS on an extra HD, but I believe that you have to reformat your drives each time you add or remove something from the raid 0, so reinstalling of the OS might be a minor problem compared to backing up all your additional data (samples). But I might be wrong, maybe actual raid controller can add new drives without harming existing data.
