New to RAID

Hi, I am new to the entire RAID concept and system, and was wondering if I could run my 2TB WD Caviar Black and a 1TB WD Caviar Black in RAID 0. If so, how would I go about doing that.

Thanks

You sure can. You will only end up with 2tb's of usable space though. Generall you only want to raid with the exact same types of disk / size.

Hi,
Raid only complicates system image back ups.
Besides best results are adding os and programs to an ssd and keep data/ back ups on hdd no need for raid for that simple task.

You should RAID 1 your data drives and have backups. Redundant arrays and backups are two different things of course. You can partitian the 2tb drive in half and then setup a RAID 1 with that half and the 1tb drive. That way you will have two current copies of data in case either drive fails, plus your last backup and any other you have saved. Data dependibilty. If having a current second copy for fail-over at all times is not important and it is ok to lose anything since last backup then you won't need to setup a RAID 1.
