I think the only benefit of RAID0 is performance. If you had two drives in RAID0, theoretically you would get twice the performance than if they weren't.

However if one hard drive crashes or fails, both do, this is because RAID0 combines the drives and makes it into one drive.

The DS3L does not support RAID, you would need a RAID card to do it.

Hi. First of all, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID

Read through that, and if you have specific questions, then ask--but asking for an explanation of RAID0 in the forums is useless 'cause it's quite complex, and already answered elsewhere... Sorry to lecture you.

RAID0 aka "striping" is when you run two identical hard drives as one large, twice as fast, single hard drive.

For example, I run two 160Gb hard drives in RAID0, windows sees a single 320gb harddrive.

And this new hard drive is twice as fast.

One thing you need to know....


If you are using a crap raid controller or a software implemented raid you will be disappointed as the performance is poor and the chance of data corruption is high. Ensure that your board has a good built in controller or buy a seperate raid controller. Hope this helps!

For you, you would need a raid controller.

Like so

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816124008

Then you have to set up the Raid array.

Doing this you will lose all your data so back everything up, you will also need another identical hard drive.

You enable a 'RAID' bios through your motherboard's Regular BIOS.

However:

Your motherboard DOES NOT support RAID, and
you need a floppy and drivers for the raid array to be recognized when installing windows.

If you'd still like to pursue this, you'd either look into a new motherboard, or a RAID card
