Intel Raid you mean ? THe jmicron is pretty crummy , but intel is good. Using Matrix raid you can have 2 stripes on a raid. Raid0 for OS & raid1 for the rest. see Intel® Matrix Storage Technology For more info. I've just upgraded my storage to 2x500 + 1 x 1tb , but prior to that was running 4x80gb in raid0 +raid1 as above, with the 2x500 as stand alone drives.Which should I use the boards hardware RAID 1 or use the software RAID 1?
Acronis is ideal for raid.
