HI,

Just that, I'm thinking of setting up a RAID 5 configuration on my PC using 3 - 1.5 TB HDs. Only, I don't know if you can partition the HDs in RAID configuration?

Can I partition like I normally would? I would like tos et up at least 5 partitions. Can I do this with a RAID configuration? Do I need to know anything different if I can - can't? Thanks.

I don't see why not. Ive never used raid 5, but I am using Raid 1 right now, and windows recognizes both as one and lets me partition like I normally would. I currently have one partition, one half of my drive is where i install my programs and such and the other documents/pics and such.
