Possible to do RAID 5 via 3 identical, external USB drives?
Posted on 2008-11-05
Is it possible to create, under Windows XP Pro, a RAID 5 (or at least RAID 1 [mirror]) array by using 3 identical, designed-for-RAID-by-Western-Digital, internal hard drives that are each mounted in their own (non-identical) SATA-to-USB enclosure? Is there a hub-type device that can be used to accomplish this task?
If so, then I can move my array from PC to PC, as I wish, which will be frequently.
Thanks. I'll be impressed if somebody can come up with a way for me to do this. I've never seen such a device.
