Formatting disks in preparation of Raid setup
on Mar 26, 2009 at 2:10:56 am

I am going to reconfig my machine with OS on one drive and media on a raid 0 config. Currently they are in Raid 1 and I am deleting files from that array. When I'm ready to begin rebuilding do I need to format the disks before changing the system configuration or would I install and set up Raid0 and then format?

My board is ASUS P5W DH Deluxe

Thanks!

After you build the RAID array, your OS or the OS installer will "see" a new drive and then you will format it. Use quick format
