Do I have RAID or Not ??

Hi Guys,

I have 2 x 1TB SATA Samsung F3's, Ive set them up in the Intel Matrix Storage Manager Configuration Utlility at Boot as a RAID 0 Array but when I look in my Intel Disk Configuration Manager in Windows it says they are Basic Disks, dont they have to be Dynamic disks to be RAID 0 ?

No they don't. Windows doesn't really know that it is 2 disks running as 1 in RAID.

Dynamic partition are only present when one partition spans several volumes - or if you go beyond 4 primary partitions on one volume.
