Raid0 + storage drive

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, just a noob Q, i am going to build a new machine, and setup raid 0, so its going to be Raid0 160GBx2, ok i know raid0 if one drive dies then i am screwed, so my question is if i add another 500GB drive for my important files or backups, without raid, would that be possiable? does it require more setup procedures?
have a nice day

I have RAID 0 on my two main cards then an external.

I set up the RAID and installed windows. Then just plugged in the drive and it worked beautifully!

No issues at all. However, just like a RAID HD failing... your single HD can fail as well.

I would do 2x160GB RAID and a 300GB backup HD. The RAID0 will give you 320GB and you can parition 20GB for your OS. Just run a weekly (or more often) backup of your 300GB data to the single HD.
Once again...
