RAID 0 Partitions

Curiosity - If I would partition a 500GB RAID 0 into 2 x 250GB partitions. Are these partitions equally asigned across both disks or would it place the first 250GB in the first disk.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

They'd be equally spanned across both disks. That's the reason why, when one disk fails or only has a small problem, you loose all data on the complete array. For that reason RAID 0 shouldn't be used, or only if the data on the array has no value (for example temporary data).
