I always assumed I would lose the second half of the 160gig in a RAID-O (or RAID-1 for that matter), am this correct?

Or can I use the second half of the 160gig (the remaining 80gig) if I seperate it into a seperate partition?

So its my 80gig drive with half a 160gig (in 80gig partition).. then use the second half of the 160gig as a non-RAID storage?


Thanks.

edit- It probably does not matter, but the board in question is the Asus A8N SLI, specifically.

You will lose the 2nd 1/2 of your 160 gig HD on those configs...if you want all the Gig ten consider setting it up as JBOD or having them both seperate HD's
