Like I said by some act of god and it really would be an act of god you manage to arry 2 different drives even if they had the same rpm and made by the same company at some point when you do some normal everyday task your pc will magically reboot and when you get to boot screen you will get **RAID ARRAY NOT DETECTED** in pretty flashing letters across your screen
They don't have to be identical, but need to have identical performance. There's no problem taking a 120 gig Caviar and striping it with a 40 gig Caviar except that you would only have an 80 gig stripe.

K you find me 2 different harddrives which are exactly and they have to be exact for example transfer rate of 1.3343Mb ps not 1.3353Mb ps (and yes I know they arent real figures) which arent identical models and I will stand corrected and give you REP+ for teaching me something new and intersting (not that you need it) and if you cant you can do the same ?

I've done it with a 120 gb Western Digital Caviar hard drive and a 40 gb Western Digital Caviar hard drive on a socket A system. It's been running for roughly a year and 1/2.

Which makes them DIFFERENT models. The Chevrolet Tahoe is a big SUV. The Chevrolet Suburban is the same thing, just with a longer wheelbase and more room. It's the same thing, just bigger, but that doesn't mean it IS the same. The drives are not identical, which goes against the "All the drives must be the same" theory. They must have the same performance, not neccesarily be the same exact model of drive.

But they are the same model they are designed exactly the same with the exactly same specs but in different sizes, but hey dont take my word for it run along to the western digital website and take a a look at there different size same range and they say 3200KS 5000KS for 320Gb and 500Gb respectively, then take a look at all their specs and while your over there grab me a couple of them 150 raptors

(Dont mean to sound sarcastic, having a bad day)

I would like to see the benchmarks on those drives cos that cant work right, I aint accusing you of lying mate if its there its there I dont mind admitting being wrong but I have been using Raid0 for ages I have read countless docs and info off the web and that shouldn't be possible..........
