raid question

I'm using a kg7-raid mobo with maxtor 100gb and maxtor 40gb HD's. Whats the best way to get the best raid preformance without sacrificing nearly 1/2 of my hard drive capacity.

  1. There isn't.
    Unless you keep the 100 and 40 drives on separate RAID setups. Or span them, but that's not really a RAID.

  2. like fatburger said your either got to get another 40 gig maxtor or loose 60 gigs of your 100 maxtor (what a waste that would be)
    i use 2* 20 gig ibms in raid0 & my old 45gig drive the kids use for there games ect that way i dont waste my old hd & it keeps my data away from my meddling kids!!!!
  3. no possible...

  4. Hmm, isn't there a way to partition the 100GB hard drive in to a 40GB Hard drive and a 60GB hard drive? And then you could RAID your 40GB hard drive with the 40GB partition?

  5. Nope, raid runs at lowest disk.Oh or is that just for scsi.

  6. You could do that in software, but then it becomes a whole lot of effort for not much gain.
