Thread: FASTTRACK 100 RAID and WIN 2k

  1. #1

    Question FASTTRACK 100 RAID and WIN 2k

    Well I've got a win2k set up with FastTrack100 in RAID 0 config with dual Maxtor 30GB 7.2krpm HD on seperate IDE channels and now the question is. WELL the thing does not improve any HD transfer whatsoever, I've had a sustained Transfer rate of 24mb/s via HD-TAch Cibench and Sisoft sandra, I clean install win2k into the newly formed array and what do I get? Same benchmark well mayhbe 1mb/s diffrence? Why, does nayone has any experience in this matter on what should I do and why it doesn't work how it supposed to?
    Thanks

    To some extent you are a victim of benchmark bogosity. Sandra is bogus, and HDTach has issues as well. It might be that everything is in fact fine. Could be a config problem as well.
