Awww... crud! How do you keep your WD 1tb down below 13ms? The storage drive here doesn't quite match up to that.

Yours is the Caviar Green, not Black. ;D

Might be an idea to get a caviar black for windows and use the green for storage.

You mean I can't use the 500gb GP model for 7?!



That would offset the entire partitioning scheme here. We can't have that now!

Just saying... the Black is the performance flavor of the Caviar series while the Green is well... green.

Your partitioning scheme is quite... interesting. Are you mixing OS and data on the same partitions? 200-400GB are pretty big for OS

Since I could end up wiping any primary at any time for a change in the custom installs here I often end storing some XP files on the Vista drive, 7 files on the XP drive, XP files on the Vista drive, and around and around we go!

The 1tb was a recent addon as well as popping the external usb drive out of the enclosure there for internal use to find out that was also a GP model like the 1tb drive. CarltonBale.com Western Digital My Book - Opening the Case - Removing the Drive

When you work a little bit with video files and dvr recordings you soon find you need one thing for certain. "drive space and memory"! XP is still on since no one came out with video recording software for tuner cards that works on Vista and now 7 while the picture can be seen on the 64bit 7000 build.

Actually once 7 is final on the next host drive simply by replugging cables into different ports the present Vista and XP drives can easiy see an array out of those two with a 32bit/64bit dual boot on a new 7 host! That sounds even more interesting!

Well heres how mines laid out:

WD raptor x + WD raptor 150 in RAID 0 for the OS and programs only
WD raptor 36gb for pagefile, indexing database and browser profiles
Samsung F1 1Tb for games only
Samung F1 1Tb for downloads, sundry files and user account
Samsung F1 1Tb for music and videos

The key here is to move pagefile and indexing off your OS drive.
