Installing HDD in raid 0

Feb 10, 2010
  1. Hi guys,

    I want to install a Western digital velociraptor to my new computer. It will be a 300gb one and i can only afford 1 at the moment. But I want to later on add another 300gb one in raid 0, is this possible without deleting OS, programs etc.. how can i do it? do i need to back up everything?

    Also is the WD velociraptor fastest HDD out at the moment? and is it faster than 6gb/s HDD that starting to come out?

    Thanks people!

    you can do this but it requires you to have 3 HDD, first install your OS on the first Western digital velociraptor when you get it. when you buy the second Western digital velociraptor, transfer the OS with this program Acronis True Image WD Edition Software to any third HDD as long as its big enough to hold the OS. take out the first velociraptor to test the back-up you just made to make sure it works. if everything looks ok then setup the raid 0 and use the Acronis True Image WD Edition Software again to transfer the OS to the raid 0 velociraptors
