I hope this is the right forum for this question. I've heard that you're not supposed to defrag a RAID 0 HD, is this just a rumor?

I'm running XP Pro, with 2 HD's in a RAID 0 configuration.

thanks

Of course it can be defragged. All a RAID basically is is two hard drives being seen as one big one.

RAID is actually 2 or more hard drives working as one... Not seen as one big one.

Sorry, didn't read properly ^_^, depends on setup of the raid controller.
