    RAID 0 and APPS

    to clear things up. The OS and Apps are not on a RAID 0 setup. They are on an independent drive.

    RAID 0 and APPS

    In everyones honest opinon what should be stored on a RAID 0 set up? I have the OS stored on a U160 drive with the apps, but was wondering what if this is the best setup. Should games also be installed on the same drive as the apps?? So that leaves pretty much data files for the RAID 0 setup that i have. Is this the correct thinking????? Thanks Ahead of Time. Darius
  3. I'm curious about this. If it is mounted in another drive, does it utilize the drive it is mounted in, in any way. The reason i ask is the drive i want to hide is a swap file on it's on hard drive and don't want to have it using the C drive if i mounted it there. Just Curious Thanks for all of yalls help. Darius
  4. I cannot figure out how to hide hard drives in windowsXP. Any ideas on how to do this. Just me as a user, but i have a number of partitions on different drives for swap/temp, etc.., which i don't want to see every time i go to my computer. Thanks Darius
  5. Thanks for yalls responses. Could yall recommend the size i should set the temp size to. It will be on a partition on a separate drive as my OS. Thanks
  6. How do you change the TEMP and TMP variables? Does this benefit the system in any way that you know of? Thanks for your help.
  7. I'm in the final stages in setting up my system and have a couple of questions. I'm using WindowsXP Pro 1) I have moved my Temp Internet and Swap Files to the outer edge of their own partition on my RAID 0 Array (separate from the OS Drive). I'm curious about the Temp File (not the Internet Temp File). Would moving it benefit the system in any way? If so, how do you move it so that windows knows to save things down there and what is the recommended size? 2). Does Windows use files that are hidden? I would like to hide the swap and temp drives, but i'm a little unsure how window operates with them hidden. Thanks ahead of time for your help
  8. so does this work with XP. xpcachefilter did nothing for me. my reads are over 100MB/sec while my writes are under 30MB/sec. This is with 3 fujitsu 15K U160 drives in a RAID 0 array using 3 different channels on a Mylex Extremeraid2000. dying over here

    Wouldn't the 2 external connectors make it 2 channels? Otherwise, why not just make one connector.

    You raise a very good point UNKNOWN. It will cost a little extra, but they do have 2 bay U320 and a 4 bay U320. My drives are only U160, but it gives me the option of upgrading in the future. I haven't messed around with U320, but i would think that it's backward compatiable with U160. Of course you would only get the speed of U160. Can U160 Cables be used with U320?? Let me know if this is wrong, please. Thanks Again, Darius

    Chew, Yes, you are correct. I don't really need a dual power supply--that'll save me $100+
