RAID Confusion
on Dec 10, 2003 at 9:14:52 pm

Hi to all the VideoGuys out there!Wink
I could really do with help in setting up a RAID 0 array on my system for video editing.
I have ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Mobo and 2 S-ATA Maxtor Diamond Max 9 80gb Drives.
Have set up the RAID array in the BIOS and selected a "chunk" size or "stripe" as 64. What size should I use to get the best performance for video editing??
In Windows XP I have gone into the disk management utility to continue with the installation so the disks can be found in "my computer".
I have selected the "Allocation Unit Size" to default and was wondering if I should make it larger E.g 64 (same as in BIOS) or larger still.
I am new to the whole world of RAID set up and would really appreciate some help here.Please help !!
