    This is all IDE through an Abit KG7-RAID mobo using the Highpoint controller.


    Primary Master= RAID Array #1 Mirroring
    Primary Slave= RAID Array #1 Mirroring

    Secondary Master= RAID Array #2 Striping
    Secondary Slave= RAID Array #2 Striping


    Should I keep it this way or would the data transfer faster if I did this?


    Primary Master= RAID Array #1 Mirroring
    Primary Slave= RAID Array #2 Striping

    Secondary Master= RAID Array #1 Mirroring
    Secondary Slave= RAID Array #2 Striping


    Thanks.

    Put them on seperate channels.

    The bandwidth per channel is shared so putting them on seperate ones will make it fsater.

    It does support 0+1. When I inititally installed the drives, this is it how it detected them.

    Primary Master - WD 80 GB ---- HDD-1
    Primary Slave - WD 80 GB ---- HDD-2
    Secondary Master - WD 80 GB ---- HDD-3
    Secondary Slave - WD 80 GB ---- HDD-4

    I had a 0+1 Array with Win2K on it but then I had to format for some reason and decided to rebuild the array as well. When it detects the drives, this is how they come up

    Primary Master - WD 80 GB ---- BOOT
    Primary Slave - WD 80 GB ---- HDD-1
    Secondary Master - WD 80 GB ---- HDD-2
    Secondary Slave - WD 80 GB ---- HDD-3

    When I try to build the 0+1 array, it says not enough "devices" to build it. For some reason, its only detecting 3 useable hard drives instead of 4. I can't seem to get rid of that "BOOT" drive and make it back to the way it was. It only lets me change the BOOT drive to one of the other drives. Anyone know how to get it back to the way it was?
