I am a newcommer here, but I am not totaly ignorant of how my computer works...It has come time to reformat my drives and I want to set my RAID array to 0 instead of the 1 that I stupidly had it preset to. I am a photographer so I am running mostly Photoshop and graphics software on here..alone with a film scanner, photoprinter..and video editing software. so obviously I am looking to speed up my read and writing rates with a STRIPING instead of the MIRROR. I have a DELL XPS running windows XP, two 120G, I, 8M, 7.2K, Serial ATA, SEAGATE-ALPINE 1 hard drives, my processor is clock at 3.2 Ghz, so on and so forth. I am looking to set up a stripe and partition one drive for windows and media, and leave on drive set strickly for PS and my imaging software. as well as file archives not on disk. I know i must back up all files I want to save, and that reformating is not an entirely difficult process, but I havent found an answer as to how to go about changing my RAID array when I reformat...ANy help would be much appreciated, or a link to a tutorial. any recomendations on a good program to use for backing files up would help to as I have amassed a huge amount of savable data in the year and a half I have owned this PC. thanks.
