Im using Win7 x64. I just created a hardware raid 5. My controller is an Intel one.
It consists of 4 x 1TB drives. (931gb actual space)
It says I have 2862GB of space right after I create the Raid 5.
In disk management it shows a new drive with 2794.52gb unallocated and it must be initialised. Once I initialize the drive I get 2 choices, MBR disk or GPT disk. If I do MBR it splits the drive up in two, a 2048gb drive and an unusable 746gb drive. If I put it as GPT it leaves all the space in tact.
Why does MBR do this and where does that space go?? and if I choose to leave it as GPT to maintain that space, is that ok??
im confused with this.
