So either get other 500GB raid for the 500GB, or just use the 500gb for 2nd storage. | Report abuse Reply to cin19 WINTERLORD March 2, 2013 5:04:04 PM i cant make a partition and raid a 500gb partition | Report abuse Reply to WINTERLORD cin19 March 2, 2013 5:27:56 PM no. | Report abuse Reply to cin19 WINTERLORD March 2, 2013 5:51:33 PM dosnt the intel raid controller allow you to set size and part will be raided te other part will show up as non-raid disk or use the intel raid manager? hmm that prolly would'nt work either or will it | Report abuse Reply to WINTERLORD cin19 March 2, 2013 6:17:14 PM It don't work like this way. When you set the two 500GB partion from the 1TB one in disk management, but the intel raid controller will still see it is the whole 1TB HD. | Report abuse Reply to cin19 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>2TB hard drive and 500gb HDD can i raid1 500gb n use the rest> Related ressources: ForumSSD x 1 + software RAID1 with 2 x 500gb hardware RAID1 ForumInstalling on 500GB Partition on 2TB HDD ForumBuying two 1 tb hard drives or just one 2TB drive ForumGood $100 500gb hdd ?
