Quote:
A stripe is the smallest chunk of data within a RAID array that can be addressed. People often also refer to this as granularity or block size. It can be compared to the blocks (logical block addressing - LBA) on conventional hard drives. Most RAID controllers allow the user to define her or his favorite stripe size, because it alters the performance characteristics of a RAID array. Typical options are 16, 32, 64 and 128 kB, but many professional RAID controllers also offer smaller stripe sizes, and some even support sizes as large as 256 kB.

Do you need to have the exact same drive to set up RAID 0??

Could i use different SSDs with different capacities and RAID 0 them??

Thanks

All you need to do is put the RAID driver on a USB, no floppy needed.

Yea, however you need a second drive as well.

Instead of reinstall you can also change your sata mode to RAID, make a system image and restore it to the RAID 0 array when you make it. No reinstall needed.
