1) Can I use SSD and HDD for RAID??


If yes

2)Will it get full fast? like if my SSD is only 128gb while HDD 500gb [just a random num] and since RAID 0 split the files into both drives,will the RAID stop working if my SSD part is full?

3) Do I get speed of SSD or speed of the HDD while both in RAID 0


please state your answer with the number of question in front ,thanks! :)

1.) CAN you use a SSD & HDD in a RAID-0 array? Yes. SHOULD you? Definitely not.
2.) The capacity of a RAID-0 array is based upon the drive with the smallest capacity. So if you have a 128GB drive and a 500GB drive your array’s capacity will be 256GB (128 x 2), not 628GB.
3.) No, you do not get the speed of the SSD. Your array’s Read/Write speeds will be based upon the drive with the slowest Read/Write speeds, which is your HDD.
