raid 0 between hdd and partition

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
In my computer there's one 120GB SSD, one 500GB HDD and one 2TB HDD. I would like to create a RAID-O array with my 500GB HDD and a 500GB partition of my 2TB HDD. Is it possible to create a RAID-0 volume between a physical disk and a partition. It can be hardware or software raid.

The RAID controllers "sees' only physical disks not partitons. But if you are interested you can create a software RAID with a single disk (only in Linux). Here is a tool to do that.

If you are talking about being able to make a Raid 0 with the entire disk of the 500 GB and only 500GB of the 2TB with the rest seen as a separate hard drive. It does not work like that its why they say to use the same size drives because you can not use the rest of the hard drive as you would have to bypass the raid controller and Im not sure how well a harddrive would work anyways with 2 different sources trying to work the disk. You would more likely end up with Raid array failures alot cause the disk would not respond fast enough to the controllers commands even if it is a enterprise hard drive.

Now if you dont care that you are throwing away 1300GB of storage and if you are asking if you can raid 2 different size drives together then yes. Windows 7 has built in software raid 0, 1, 5, and JBOD
