Because they're in RAID:Nice setup and overclock torch, what do you have 5 250gb hard drives? Why not get a terabyte or a few 500gb?
You can't do a RAID with only one driveWikipedia said:
I moved those drives and RAID card from my 4 year old Athlon 3200+. If I had bought them along with my current setup it would be 5x1TB or something. I don't know how anyone can run a computer without RAID! I've lost data before because of a single drive crash without RAID and it was a royal pain in the ass. Personally I just laugh to my self when buggers tell me they bought a new 1TB or 1.5TB drive, thinking "Heh heh heh, wait till it crashes, 1TB of data down the drain."Nice setup and overclock torch, what do you have 5 250gb hard drives? Why not get a terabyte or a few 500gb? And why are those batteries needed? Sorry, I just don't know.
