Raid 0+1, How Does It Work?

I heard that you can RAID 0+1 with two hard drives of the same size, brand, ect....and that you can make those two drives write on a third drive the size of the two combined drives, how does that work? Im not sure the facts and not behind this, I only heard it from a friend.

Hm...in my understanding there must be a Minimum of 4 Drives for this Configuration. AND requires twice the disk space. Nevertheless, it sounds difficult to understand this concept so..., under this presumtion I doubt that it would work.

Ok....cause I have two 80 gigs, and one 160gb, am I supposed to use the two in RAID-0 and use the third as a large storage?

Yes..I only know this as I have that set-up as well. I have 2-37G Raptors in Raid-0 and another Raptor 74G as my Music Library. (250+ CD's Ripped onto it)

**EDIT** Hypothetically Let's say if you were set-up that paticular Raid. This would not be a Raid 0+1. It would be considered a JBOD.

ur total capacity wil be the siz of the smaller drive(x2) if you use raid 0, if you use raid 1 it would have to have the smaller drive as the main drive making the extra space on the larger drive useless.

Whao! RAID is extensive :blink:

yes it is but raid is mainly used for server applications rather then PC use, but some raptors in raid 0 can seriously minimize the time it takes to load ur applications.... would not reccommend raid 1 though(unless u really want ur data backed to another HD in real time) because it slows down ur write times since it is writing to two hard drives at onece.

Yeah, I knew I was gonna use raid-0, but I thought you might be able to then save the total data on the third drive. So wait, with my two 80 GB drives in RAID-0, my total HDD space is 60 GB or 160GB?
