For the best transfer rates, use RAID. That will let you copy large files faster. For the best access times, use the 10K RPM drive. That will perform better when accessing lots of small files, as in booting or starting up programs. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: Forum15k drive or 10k RAID0 ?
