RAID on partitioned drive

Hi, i know that to create a raid array you need 2 identical drives, but i wonder if it would be possible with a single drive partitioned into 2 drives.

Thx in advance.

  1. I think you could - if the controller let you, but the performance hit would be so horrendous that no one would even consider it.

    It would basically halve your HDD's performance. (Most likely worse than halve). That's for RAID 0 and 1. If you think aobut RAID 5, it'd probably be like 1/4 of the performance w/ 3 partitions.
  2. Haha, ok.

    Thx for the answer
