lo,

I've have a Maxtor 60gb 7200rpm on my raid array at the moment.
In BIOS it sasy its set to 1 + 0 Stripe mode.....
Is that OK?
Is there a better setting I could use for 1 HDD?
Oh, and is there any software I can use to adjust my RAID array
through Windows?

You have one disk in the array? That's not an array. You need at least two. Four even for RAID 1+0 (three works in special cases).

So the setting won't matter. You can even turn RAID off if you wish. You're just using the RAID socket as a normal IDE port.

yes the bios can be set to whatever but if the disks aren't there there will be no raid. takes at least two for raid 0 and same for raid 1.

raid 1 is mirroring - two drives one a copy of other
raid 0 is striping - two or more with the data striped across them
raid 0+1 is two striped then those mirrored

you see with only one disk none of the above can be obtained:happy:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
