A simple RAID question
Posted on 2002-07-06
Or are there no simple RAID questions?
I run a 1.5G P4 on a Gigabyte GA-8IRXP motherboard with a built in ATA-133 RAID controller. However, I run only a single 60G 7200RPM IBM Deathstar HD on the ATA-100 first controller (master position).
I'd like to try adding a second HD of the same size and speed, but do not want to spend the rest of my life getting it to work. Thus, the answer to this question will determine if I even try.
If I add a second HD, do I need to reformat my current HD before I even start? Or can I keep my current HD and its configuration intact and go from there?
