Hello. I have just purchased a new system with RAID 0 SATA setup of 2 500gig hds. I would like to partition the drive to c:\ = 40gig OS (Vista) d:\ = 460gig (Data) e:\ = 500gig (Games) I will also hook up another 500gig to be used as a backup image storage device. I will use Acronis to take weekly incremental images of c:\ and d:\ and omit e:\ Does anyone have any feedback on my plan before I put it into action? ie. Partition sizes? I read in another post here that partitioning a raid0 will not degrade performance, and was quite concerned when I read that if one of the drives fails in a raid0, that I will potentially lose everything. So I came up with the above scenario. Ron.
