Firstly, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Vivakh, 21 years of age, from Guyana, South America. My interests are computers, gaming, web and graphic development. I enjoy reading and meeting new people.
Now, to my questions,
I have an ASUS M3A78-PRO mb, and it supports RAID. I also have two identical 160gb Seagate barracudas, Drive0 & Drive1. Drive1 is completely empty, its not formatted with any file system. Drive0 is partitioned in a 60gb for windows 7 and a 100gb for my files.
I have heard that RAID 0 will increase my drives performances and have also heard if one fails, my system goes down. I am ok with that, but i have never set up an array before. What i would like to know is:
1. Can i set up these two drives in RAID 0, and;
2. If i configure them in RAID 0, will i loose my current partitions in Drive0?
If there is something remotely close to a guide on how to do this, i would be happy if anyone can point me to it.
