New & Old HDDs (x4) OS and file split assistance request
I am upgrading and adding to my current HDD arrangement. Currently I have two HDDs, SATA, one with Windows on and one with Ubuntu on (to keep things simple).
I wish to load Ubuntu onto a SSD HDD and then run two SATAs for everything else on my Ubuntu OS; one being the SATA I already have with Ubuntu on it and the other an additional SATA drive I will purchase.
I would like to use the two discs in tandom, but I'm not sure what RAID set up I would need (I hear it's RAID0 but unconfirmed).
The Windows SATA disk would remain untouched. Totalling to x1 SSD with Ubuntu OS on it, x2 SATAs working together for Ubuntu games, music, etc... and x1 SATA for Windows.
I have some questions:
1) Is this difficult to set up? Seems relatively easy reading up on it online.
2) Can I just move my files from my existing Ubuntu SATA HDD, or would I have to do a fresh install?
3) My SATA discs can take 6GB (SATA 3) transfer rates it seems. Is it worth getting SATA 3 cabling, as the drives can't write the information that fast anyway...? (Currently I have SATA 2 cabling, 3GB rate)
4) Is it worth having a different file system to EXT for my OS and then EXT for the other discs?
5) Always end a list on odd numbers
Thanks in advance all
