|I noticed that Darkfriend had stated that you can mirror with two drives, but striping requires 3. Within my own experience of building a system with a striped raid using two disks was troublesome, particularly when booting, but it could be done. Booting was a lengthy process and you must avoid the temptation to abort the boot process and start again.|
My documentation did not spell out any other requirements for a third disk. However, having done this, my own theory is that if I had a standard boot C: drive along with a pair striped raid drive, it would have run much smoother and it would have eliminated any boot problems.
I'm still trying to come to terms on raid, so any feedback on this would be appreciated.
