im currently putting together a RAID 0 array using two Seagate Barracuda 80gb 7200rpm ATA100 drives. I intend to use an Adaptec 1200a RAID controller, this card has two channels allowing two drives per channel. To get best preformance i intend to have one 80gb per channel. Now wat i want to know is at a later date can i add for example one 120gb drive to each channel and run these as a seperate raid array? or am i stuck using 80gb drives?

any drives attached to the card become part of the array. you could add 120g drives but they would be limited to 80gig on each and the array might slow down a bit due to having 2 drives on a channel.

best thing is to sell the 80's and use the 120's.
