I'm going to be rebuilding my RAID 0 2 x 2Tb config today, because I found out that my sector size is 512mb and I've been advised that I shoud set it for 128 or 256. Does either work better than the other for a media drive? Any other sizes you're using that seem to work well for you?
Sector size is a given and is 512 bytes and can not be changed under Windows, unless you are using some very special WD disks with dedicated hardware to translate the 512 byte sector size into a new 4K sector size.
I guess you are talking about either block size, cluster size or chunk size. Look here for the explanation: Adobe Forums: To RAID or not to RAID, that is the...
Harm, yes I was incorrectly referring to Block size when I called it Sector Size. Any tweaks I can make when setting up a RAID 0 to help performace or are the factory defaults good enough? In other words, are there any adjustments other than the fixed 512 setting that might increase I/O performance?
Felix, go for the maximum block size you can set. It depends on the controller, but for media just use the largest value you can choose.
