    Hard Disk Configuration

      I've just finished building my new machine and am after a bit of adivce on the hard disk configuration, i've had some feedback from Jim Simon on another post, but wanted to check what the best set-up would be.
      The current set-up is as follows:
      1 x 500Gb Raid 0 Array - Windows Programs etc
      1 x 1Tb Raid 0 Array - Currently empty
      1 x 1Tb Raid 0 Array - Also currently blank

      I have in total 6 Disks, 4 x 500Gb SATA drives and 2 x 250Gb SATA Drievs, the MB i'm using supports RAID in 0 / 1 / 5 / 0+1 / JBOD

      Thanks in advance.

          I would put captured material on the second RAID and Projects/Scratch/Preview on the third.

          It seems like overkill to have the third RAID0 though. I would be inclined to set up the 5th and 6th disks as separate and put projects/scratch on one, and use the 6th as backup for the 5th. Not as a RAID1 because that would slow things down. Just a separate backup.
