hard drives & raid - benchmark and compare!

Recommended Posts

Man. glad you got it sorted out!

 

did you have the RAID drivers imbeded in the slipstreamed disc?

 

were you using a floppy after an F6 deal.?

Yes, the 6.53 raid drivers were slipstreamed as well as winxp w/sp2 on it.

 

According to Thunda's link, you cannot do different cluster size other than default if you use winxp w/ sp2 slipstreamed! And I just proved it. Oh well, I'm all the more wiser now, ...I guess.... :rolleyes:

and I'm totally confused as I just formated the 2nd Array (Hitachi's) at 8?

 

I know I used a slip streamed disk. did add raid drivers through floppy though.

But was it a boot array?

Right, mine is a boot array. BIG difference. I spent hours googling before I even asked this question and came up fruitless.

That configuration gives you some more throughput. I'm wondering why the rate drops off towards the second half of the drive now. It didn't do that on your original setup.

 

Just remember that every file will take up at least 8K on the drive. If you use this on the OS partition you generate a lot of slack due to the file sizes involved.
