Thread: Raid & Windows XP

    it basically merges the two physical drives (two hdds) into one logical drive (ie - C: ). So using RAID 0 on two 40GB drives will give you, in theory, an 80GB drive. When it goes to write data on the drive, it splits the data across the two drives, so it can write almost twice as fast...

    Some people say that this is a bit dodgy, cos if one drive crashes, then you lose the data on both. but it's the same as having an 80GB drive, just different hardware....
