my pc will use this raid0 array, it is a gamepc, I don't even use it daily.
My images tend to be below 4 gb tops uncompressed...
I'll ghost it on a WD 120 gb where movies/games and such are put

and if I lose data, so what, I just re-instore the ghost, I don't care, there's nothing of importance on that pc

my custom install comes up with an image of 6GB.. full compression :ww:

only way to dump it or to restore is through a network ghostcast server! and it takes more then 5 min, believe you me.

don't compare you office WinXP+util install with that of a PC enthousiast.

Server on ... 1 CD
pc with full premium office (images incl.) - and about 20 other software-title's on ... 2 CD's

I don't know if you are aware, but an image makes use of compression :grin:

RAID-0 can be used perfectly in a non-critical-important PC.
Excellent for home use. OS on raid-0, image OS + data on other disk.

Had raid-0 in homebox. 1 crash in 1 year, fixed in 5sec with a tool (think rbtool, posted it here somewhere).

uke: @ RAID-0 for other use then a scratch disk.

I'll be getting two of these in raid-0 setup with my setup change in 04, the moment I go to socket 939.

performance wise it looks astonishing, and I'll use my "old" wd120BB-8MB cache as datadrive... that way you get over 200 gb tops, and I actually never need more than 100 coz I delete verything anyway
