Not ever trying RAID nor haveing the moeny to try im just goign by what i think here. I think RAID requires 2 drives that are exactly the same. Therefore havign a single drive it would not work. even if it did i wouldnt speed anythign up bc ur using the same cable with the same limitations just speed would be split btwn the two partitions. so possibly even slower i THINK.

 

Again if im wrong (meanign someone that has experence tells u otherwise) forget what i said. If im right bouns points to me fo not being a total idiot. Now back to AP comp. Science, time to program some java :)

yes to effectively do RAID 0, you need 2 physical hard drives. There would be no advantage to partition to 2 partitions and try it that way. Plus I don't know of anyway to actually set that up. Any RAID setup utility I've ever used always requires atleast 2 physical disks.
