I was planning on getting the Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB drive for my RAID 5 configuration, but I've been reading a few things that say they don't support it or something? Any input? Has anyone done this?

They are 4K sector drives. Should be fine in Windows 7, which creates aligned partitions. You can check with AS SSD to be sure.

Whether your partitions are aligned or not. It would say OK is they are good, and BAD if they are not.

I will use for storage for media and workstation backups, with windows 7 pro 64bit

so you have the caviar green 2tb drives in a RAID 5? have you had any problems? how does it work? anything special you have had to do?
