What is the typical partition size for RAID 0?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What size partition should I use for two 320gb drives?

Whatever I create now, will I have no trouble now going back with Partition Magic and repartitioning the drives?

Or once I partition this whole drive for windows RAID 0, I won't be able to just go back and make the partition smaller while keeping the RAID configuration. My guess is that I would have to redo the RAID setup.

As said the partition size is to your preference. It wont affect performance in any way. However once you have done that i wouldnt reccomend resizing partitions afterwards for a RAID array. It may cause issues.
