How to short stroke a RAID 0??

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I want to be able to use only 500GB on a couple of spinpoint F3s inRAID 0..That way I can use a single F3 to back up the array... please don't suggest RAID 5.. not enough ports for that option... thanks

You could create a 500GB partition on them at the beginning of the array - otherwise just use 500GB's on the array and know that the rest isn't for use

Short stroking is.... meh. I don't think it's worth the loss of space. My Samsung F3's in RAID 0 are fast as hell for mechanical drives and 2TB is nice.

I don't wish to lose all my info if one of the drives takes a dump... I wonder if a RAID 0 can be done on one sataII and the other on a sataIII port...if I can do that..I would do RAID 5

I think it can.

But this is what I did:

1 drive (smallest) is your OS disk
Do RAID1 or a something and move all your personal folders (My Documents, music, etc) to it
Use a 3rd drive as an external to move things onto you don't use very often.

A sata controller that supports raid must be used, I don't think you can use two different controllers for raid. If you have already got an os running on the raid 0 and just want to short stroke it, I would maybe take a look at hdtune, which has an option to check ss. You want to create a partition at the point where the speed declines. If your using 500gb total, then more than likely the partition should be around 90-120gb for optimal speed.

Hope that helps

SATAIII should be backwards compatible to SATAII...

All my ports are SATAIII capable, but all my drives are SATAII so I imagine you could run a RAID 5. I just run a RAID 0 and backup to an external 2TB once a week or so.

ALL of the raid drives in an array need to be on the SAME controller, so no that won't work.

Depending on how many ports you have, if sata 1-4 is controlled by the same chipset then technically it should work, but if sata 1-2 is on a different controller from 3-4 then no you can't use 1 and 3 to create raid.
