Re: Formating Question
IF you want to keep them as a RAID0 array there is no need
to recreate the array, UNLESS you wanted to set a different
No a format will not increase or decrease the performance
relative to it being a RAID array. After formatting, you
haev an entire clean drive, so there could be no
fragmentation, the files will be placed on the faster outer
tracks of the drive first and it will seem a bit of a speed
improvement perhaps, the same as taking any single drive
full of stuff and formatting it clean again.
Essentially there is no need to format at all though, you
can just delete the files on them, though a format could be
the faster way to clear off everything in some cases, but
it need not be a full instead of quick format unless you
just want it to check as it does it.
