Hi Leonchik, RAID 0 is called stripe set. Identical drives are recommended for performance as well as data storage efficiency so it is recommended that you use not just the same make and size but even the same model number. You need a minimum of two drives to form a RAID 0. The disk array data capacity is equal to the number of drive members times the smallest member capacity. For example, one 1GB and three 1.2GB drives will form a 4GB (4 x 1GB) disk array. (1) should both of disks have one partition only, or i can split them to several partitions? Ans: Only one partition is required. 2)can i use ghost with raid 0? Ans: Yes it can be used with ghost. I recommend you check out with the ghost software vendor, as some versions may have issues. 3)does raid 0 uses the whole space of hd? Ans: Yes it uses whole space I recommend you have a look at the below Website for a graphical view of RAID implementation. http://www.acnc.com/raid.html Best Regards Ayub.

Yes to both parts of your question. You can have mult. paritions, or you may have one. You an use ghost, or any imaging software on a raid system. This is because the controller makes the drives appear "as one."
