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.
