have 2 x 120gb hard drives set up as raid 0, running xp pro, would splitting up the h/d (seen as 1 drive of 240 gb) into several partitions be advisable?????? i.e. putting " My Documents" on D, am intending to use this setup mainly for d/video editing and also vhs transfer to dvd, any thoughts on this???? perhaps each operation/ project into it's own partion????

simple yes partition magic is a great help in allowing you to do this but please check & back up your data just in case it wants you to format back to square 1 It may or may not 40G partitions is the usual norm but you decide what you require

i use acronis 5.0, which i already had, not as pretty as partion magic but works fine, but i'm still not sure what advantages, if any , i would get if i install/ use multiple partitions...
ant thoughts please.....

keep system files separate and if anything goes wrong you only risk one sector. also defrag etc is faster.

Incorrectly called RAID 0 is in fact datastriping not RAID. Therefore if you split one drive I think the same amount will be lost from the other. I've no real idea what will happen so think you need to read up on this unless someone actually knows.
