Ok. so. first off.
Windows 7 professional.
120gb ssd (OS and Some programs.)
(2) 700 gb HDD seagate
(1) 500 gb HDD Westdell
(1) 2 tb hdd westdell
So my question/what im trying to do is this:
create a raid striping system out of the two 700 gb HDD and the 500 GB HDD (for slightly better performance).
and mirroring that 1900 gb of space onto the 2 tb HDD (for protection/backup).
This way I can create a large volume but also back it up in case one of the drives contained in it dies.
Is that possible? Or would it have to be one big spanned volume (no striping, therefore no performance boost), and I can mirror the spanned volume.
Or is that also out of the question??
Also wondering about Hard ware vs software raids. Just in general some information. I hear hardware is better. Not entirley sure what that means. Im trying to contain the above setup within my computer case in the housing for hard drives.
