  1. I might not be 100% right on this. But I think a raid setup needs to use the same type of HD's or it will defalt to the slowest one. I would do a little more research before trying this kind of setup. By all rights's, if you are going to use RAID as a backup system, you might be just as well off with a good backup program. If you are trying to write to both drives at the same time. I don't think you will see that much improvement, being that todays drives are running fairly fast. RAID was a big help several years ago. Just some thoughts I had in the back of my head when I researched it years ago. RAID is still being used in big networks to guarantee a backup copy. But this is the kind of situation where they would be using 10 to 100+ drives.

  4. I'm on Comcast with the 4mg/384KB setup. I have tweaked my system up to the point that I can break the download side constantly, 4MIGs+, but I still lag a little on the upload side. Does anybody know of an extra tweak to help push the up side? Thanks in advance for any help. Steve
