    Awesome...

    Finally people will understand more about SoftRAID, how it works, differences between them and why they should or shouldn't use them.
    ...even though it's not a new technology.

    But MarshallR... It's all every well informing the kids how to use the features and setup their hardware but isn't it part and parcel to inform them why this isn't a suitable backup device/solution??? Atlease people can make an informed decision knowing it's advantages and disadvantages - we're talking about people's personal data and memories here...

    Good, Accurate writeup and not recommending users to prep F6 disk for no reason. For those unaware, Win7 includes v8 of Intel's RAID driver which is universally compatible with Intel RAID controllers.

    Thanks for telling your readers to use the latest RST driver especially for SSD uses.

    I strongly suggest you revise the comment about enabling writeback cache and suggesting that users enable that optionally ad their own risk.

    The default settng is fine for most users. Those who know what they are doing will be aware of the extra options anyway.

    The same applies for Intel Smart Response, safe mode versus performance mode both can corrupt the filesystem in performance mode if the system freezes or power is lost worst case.

    Thanks Nitro I will certainly do so. I guess I am pretty much focused on performance given my hobby. And what you say is quite true.

    And Neo - yeah mate it is assumed that folks do understand that a RAID array does not mean having to make regular back ups. I will include that bit too.

    Keep the comments coming lads all the feedback is good.

    F6 pressing days are over. Those were back in XP days. Windows 7 and up coming Windows 8 you just click Load Drivers in the Window where it shows your hard drives ( ie disk 0- Partition 1or2 or disk 1-Partition 1 or 2 )
