Hi all,

I'm fiddling with a raid test over here, with some really ancient
hardware.

Basics:
* 4x harddrives; 428M, 421M, 540M and 540M respectively.
* Win2k pro sp4


Question:
If I make them all dynamic disks, and build a simple stripe set
(non-redundant = RAID 0?), will all the space be accumulated to a
single big array (428M + 421M + 540M +540M = 1929M), or will the
smallest drive decide the final size (4 x 421=1684M)?

Not that the difference is that big (about 300M)... But I was
thinking for later, uhhh..., experiments, where way bigger drives
will be used.

TIA.

BW,

Sorin
