I have this motherboard:
Specificaly of note is the following:
PATA 2 x ATA 100 up to 4 Devices
PATA RAID NV RAID 0/1/0+1 JBOD
SATA 4 x SATA 150
SATA RAID NV RAID 0/1/0+1 JBOD
The drives I have on it currently are:
2x 300GB PATA drives
1x 500GB SATA2 Drive
1x 80GB SATA1 Drive
1) Possible to combine all those disks into a Jbod?
2) By doing so will it format (and thereby erase all data on) my drives?
The Goal: combine the above 4 drives (and future drives) into a large jbod for personal usage. W/out erasing the current contents.
Qualifications: Not interested in striping or mirroring - am aware of potential data loss risks already.
[EDIT]: I should also mention that the manual:
...does not help me much in this area
