Question RAID 0 Short stroking Volumes

Hey everyone, long time since ive been here. Lately i have been busy with school and haven't got time to do much but now im finished.

I got a quick question for your Gurus out there.

Basically its like this im using two HDD's one is 1.5tb one is 640gb so in the end im getting around 1200gb total in the RAID 0 Array. My question is, in one of the settings it asks if i want to decrease the capacity of the logical volume to be used for the next volume, so lets say i choose 600gb for the first volume. Does that mean it will be using the first 600gb on the drive platter from the outer most edge? that way i would be short stroking right? or would i have to partition the Entire volume when i get into Windows?
