I just moved my two raid 0 disks from the Asus A8V Promise controller to
the VIA controller. Saw a 15% speed gain (from 65 to 76 MB/second
according to HDTach, from two WD 80GB SATA disks). Also burst rate
increased from 112MB/sec to 161MB/second.
When rebuilding the raid array, I specifically reduced stripe size from
64KB to 32KB. I suppose my mistake is possible, because it is now
reported as 64KB again.
I restored the XP system with Ghost 2003. Does Ghost restore also reset
stripe size? Guessing, but I suppose it is just some bytes on the
Master Boot Record, and might do it? Any way around that?
