RAID 0 stripe size

  Mister Splendid 20:39 09 Apr 04

I am about to have a second Western Digital Raptor, 36GB. I'm going to set up a RAID 0 striped configuration. Can anyone with experience suggest what might be the optimum stripe size running under Windows XP Pro?

Thank-you SANTOS7 but unfortunately your link was of little use to me. I have since been in touch with Western Digital support. They tell me that my configuration will work best for speed (read/write speeds of 100-110MBs per second) with a stripe size of 128KBs.

Seems to be either 64 or 128 according to the above

Thanks Rayuk, that would seem to confirm what Western Digital are telling me.
