Striped 0 - Did I do this correctly?
on May 15, 2009 at 5:22:06 am

I've done a RAID 0 of striped two 1 TB drives. Everything appears okay - the new RAID shows up on the desktop and the sidebar - but in looking in Disk Utility, I'm not sure if it is correct.

The left side of the Disk Utility window lists as follows:

298 GB Hitachi HD
Macintosh HD (this is the volume name)

931.5 GB Hitachi HD
RAID Slice (greyed out)

931.5 GB Hitachi HD
RAID Slice (also greyed out)

1.8 TB FIRMTEK (My actual RAID)
FIRMTEK (my volume name)

Is this correct? I don't remember seeing the individual drives or slices being listed once a RAID was created. Also, I've done the procedure twice tonight - the second time I re-erased and formatted the drives before creating the RAID partition. First time I did not do the erase first. I don't want to start using the drive unless I know this is correct.

Thanks for any and all help

Hi
Thats what I have - an entry (greyed-out) for each individual drive, and a new entry for the RAID set, which is the operational one.
