Oh goodness, I'm really starting to puss out from using RAID 0 because I realized after formatting, I simply cannot risk losing 3.6 TERABYTES, of data with very low chances of recovery.
I hit up newegg today and looked for some SATA III solid state drives and there are some that have about over a dollar-per-gigabyte price ratio. Oy.
So now, I'm thinking I could budget out some more dollars for a SSD since the hard drives I'm planning to get are now at 130ish dollars. But, I do need and want that uber amount of storage while hybriding a SSD. The thing is though that I don't want to be changing file directories to different drives every time the hard drives run low on space.
I'm wondering if the two hard drives can be combined in Windows into one recognized drive, so the SSD is the C drive and the uber storage is the D drive, or U for Uber storage.
I've heard that in Xp, two hard drives can be converted into dynamic disks and then they can be combine. And, if some USB flash drives are in use, they can be converted as well. OR, can all of the drives be converted into dynamic drives and made into the C drive? Or am I pushing my luck?
Is this a good plan? Thanksgiving!
