Raid 0 partition

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Is it possible to configure two SATA hard drives to Raid 0 while each HDD has
a partition? Drive 1 will be C: and D: and drive 2 will be E: and F: C: and
E: are configured to Raid 0 for OS while D: and F: are used for storing data.

    RAID the two drives, making it one large drive, then partition it as
    needed.

    So, Disk 1 and Disk 2 = RAID 0, appears as single drive, unformatted.

    In disk manager, partition the R/0 drive as C/D, it's still R/0, you
    just create the partitions you want.

    Be advised, if you lose either drive to fault, you lose everything on
    both drives. If you want hardware redundancy you want RAID-1.

    No, you would have to remove the existing partitions and start over after
    creating the RAID array. A RAID 0 implies that each volume is striped across
    the two drives.
