Raid0

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Recently, I had to dis-assemble, and re-assemble my computer. When I connected the two hard drives to the sata ports, and I went into my BIOS screen, parts of the bigger hard drive wasn't recognized.

First hard drive:

Second hard drive:

For RAID, you usually want to keep the same model hard drive. I think short stroking the 500GB hard drive might fix your problem. Short stroking is when your hard drive only uses the inner portion of the disc which offers faster performance because you don't need more time for rotations. Since the circumference around a smaller circle is shorter, it would be faster to go around it once. However, on a larger circle, it would take longer.

^ exactly opposite of the above poster short stroking uses the outside of the platters because it has a higher tangent velocity if you will (can't think of correct physics term) one time around the disc covers 1 circle in the middle and 1 on the outside since the outside is a larger circle pie R^2 the outer portions of the disk move faster than the inner parts If the outside circle of disc has twice the radius of the inner portion then the outside spins 4 times as fast.

crude terms but simple to understand (can't remember the correct terms its been a while since i took calc physics)
hope that helped...
