I am building a new PC (P4/3GHz/3GBRAM) for music right now & would like to ask for opinion on the hard disks management system.
I have 80GB ATA, 120GB ATA, & 250GB SATA (2).
My planning is :
1. Partition the 80GB ATA into 20GB for OS (is it too much?) & the rest 60GB for program files.
2. 120GB ATA for data files.
3. RAID the two 250GB SATA into 500GB for sample libraries.
I'm far from an expert in this but I believe when you RAID (and there are different types 0, 1, 5 are three I know of) you dont actually get the summation of the two disks as available space, I think its more like one of the disk spaces, but again I am not expert in this so check out some of the optehr threads.
