now exit and carry on going how you where.

now if you got 3 phsiscal hdds in your rig, then you should have only 2 hdds displaying my computer or computer depending on os type

I will now ask you, what did I say that was incorrect. I was posting up pertaining to OPs setup. His raid choices are limited and that is what I stated.

You said I was wrong. I would like clarification on how I was wrong. If you can educate me, then next time I will know better and not make the same mistake. If you only get angry and frustrated then you come off as an impatient jackass who thinks he is better then everyone. What the hell would the point of joining this forum be if I already knew everything there was ever about computers? I am here to try and help others, as well as continue to educate myself and learn about the electronics and gadgets that I love. Your condescending attitude serves no purpose here.
rob this is what i said

raid o = stripe = one huge drive
raid 1 = mirror = almost like a backup ( a copy of the other hard drive)

the raid you are talking about is raid 0 that is making one huge drive. it is very easy to setup.

when your pc boots up, you will need to go into the bios.
there is an option in the bios to change the hdd's from ide to raid. once you have changed the setting hit F10 and enter.

now i should say unplug you other hard drives that you are not going to need so you do not raid the wrong hdd's.

now when the pc starts booting or going through the run cycle it is going to ask you to hit a few keys to sort out the raid. so when the time comes hit Ctrl + i once in there create a new raid. then you want it to be strip or raid 0. name it what ever you want to call it. then select the hard drives you want to use. then save. once done it will boot up and carry on doing what ever. .

if the raid setup does not work, go into management and format the hard drives. then it will be usable.

then install ( if you want ) intels software to keep an eye on your raid setup.
@ op:
did you buy 2 new f3's and adding it onto the pc that makes 4 hdds total or a total of 3 hdd's??

What do you mean? I mean how will I not be able to select it if I have to choose 2 drives for RAID?

I figured you would have your OS on the faster drive (F3) hence why creating the array would force you to reinstall.

Backup everything you need onto that 500GB drive, then remove it and add in the second F3. Then enable RAID, set it up, reinstall windows. Done.

(you can put the 500GB drive back in after, but removing it stops you accidentally overwriting it).
 
Fun inside...

Levontraut, I understand now that you are one of those impatient people that just repeats themselves louder if someone does not understand you the first time, then just assumes that they are an idiot if they still do not understand. Once again, what was I wrong about. It seems to me that OP wants to have 2 drives total. we need clarification from him.

Edit: As I though from the info given in the first post, Antsu wants to put both his spinpoints in the raid array, and 1 of them already contains his OS. fresh install is the only option.

You can install your OS on the seagate, and set up raid on the 2 F3 drives. Do you want 2 drives total with the OS included in the array, or do you want a separate os drive?

RAID setup is relatively simple, but you'll need to enable RAID in BIOS and sometimes enable which SATA channels will be included. Then you'll have to see what hotkey gets you into the RAID BIOS during boot, and build the array.

RAID 0: Use for faster reads/writes. You MUST have a backup of anything you don't want to lose.
RAID 1: Use for protection against drive failures. You still need a backup if you're worried about accidentally deleting something, 'cause if you delete a file, it will be gone off both drives.

Your other option is to software CLONE them. You get the redundancy of RAID 1, and the secondary drive will still have a file that got accidentally deleted off of the main drive if you're using back-up software correctly.

If it's your boot drive, you can CLONE that drive to the other drive with something like Casper. That way, even if you hose your OS, you can immediately boot off the clone. RAID 1 can't do that, if you hose your OS, it will be hosed on BOTH drives.

Best setup? Your two 1TB in RAID 0, then buy a 2TB single drive and clone the RAID 0 array to it once every 2 weeks or whatever you choose. Win/Win.

OR buy a second 500GB, set up a 2x500 RAID 0 and clone it to one of the 1TBs. Then use the other as an external off-site backup etc.

This is how I look at Raid0, The rate of failure for most drives is so low that you won't really be taking much more of a risk over running a single drive. If you backup important things you negate the whole losing everything aspect.

Just get another drive to backup the important stuff periodically and save things you're really worried about losing in two locations.
