Iam coming up on having enough money saved to build a terabyte in a raid 4. Iam just a tad confused considering I already have two hard drives. My plan was to use my system drive(250gb) for linux, ubuntu more specifically and then my 320 as the new system drive along with the 3 400gb hard drives.
I want the 3 hard drives in raid 4, but a tech buddy told me that, if Iam building a raid, I would have to reinstall my os, and with it every single program etc etc. Iam not trying to get around that, but, If my raid 4 soul purpose is for storage, can I build it, then reboot my pc for windows to recognize it with my existing system?
I know I can put my raid seperate from my actual sata drives, but, I have alot of videos, pictures music on each of the drives, so it's confusing on how i should back up my existing stuff and put it all back.
