i setup a raid with a 1tb and a 250 gb hard drive
the only option i had was to creat a volume for double the 250 gb size
is there anyway to increase the space on the 1tb hd without losing the data
also I wanted to know if i had it installed correctly...both drives are on the same volume
i have a p6x58d premium mobo
the software im using is the intel rapid storage for the devices
my main question is should these drives have their own volume and have separate partitions?

ok, so the entire 250gb drive, and 250gb of the 1tb drive, make up a raid 0 array with 500 gb of space.

Are you asking how to utilize the other 750gb of space from the 1tb drive?
