Big Storage Question .
Posted on 2004-11-27
This mite seem like stupid questions , but considering the fact that I am a newbie too the computing feild, and have little know how, I am forced too ask these questions. And I am very satisfied with the results from this website!!!!!.
1. What is the advantage too having a raid array vs a typical IDE setup.?
2. I have a ASUS A7N8X Deluxe. What would be the prformance gains (generalizations) if any?
3. With 2 hard drives @ 80 Gigs ea. What would be the amount of storage lost too this configuration ?
4. What does a 0\1 stand for in a raid description?
One reason That I am asking such questions is I had asked the person whom had built my first system and my questions were never awnsered( except when hounded) over a span of several weeks and the awnser was" I would loose a considerable amount of diskspace, therefore it would not be too my benifit to configure raid." After dealing with such a person I finally decided that with the know how I have,(And help from resources such as this site over the internet ) it would be benificial for me too dump him and build my own. And so far so good, No problems as of yet!!!!!!! . Just questions. Thank for your help in advance!!!!!!!!!.
