i also have 2 IDE drives (they are both Western Digital WD1200JBRTL drives) i want to set these 2 IDE drives up as a second RAID array. a mirrored array and use it as my D drive.
the motherboard isnt set up for a RAID array on the IDE ports.
does anyone know of a way to do this? Maybe a PCI RAID controller that has 2 IDE ports?
will the system be able to handle 2 different RAID arrays or will it cause problems?
im planning on leaving windows and all my programs on the C drive (the SATA RAID set on the on board controller)
and using the IDE RAID set for my photos and personal documents as the D drive
if someone could tell me if this is possible and suggest a PCI card that might work, id appreciate it
