ROSEWILL RC-213 PCI-E SATA II CARD SILICON IMAGE RAID DRIVER
I see the same problem elsewhere where people link to an item on eBay: It's looking like RAID6 is a better choice. I just used this RAID calculator: This is acceptable to me. You shouldn't need a RAID calculator - though of course if you aren't familiar with the technology then it's probably easier than remembering how to do it.
Striping - you just add up the drives no redundancy Mirroring - you lose half your space everything is written to two drives RAID 5 - you lose one drives worth of space out of your set RAID 6 - you lose two drives worth of space. As to sizes, this is an easy one to get caught by - and some hardware RAID controllers really don't help by only allowing you to use the whole disk. I have been caught by this in the past Rosewill RC-213 PCI-E SATA II Card Silicon Image RAID drive fails in server, call up support company and they send out a new drive, but it won't work.

Somehow they got their network working again and here it is unclear if they were still having crashes with the hacky as the new file server or if they were just not wanting to bother me with reporting every crash. At any rate, it wasn't working after I got back. Was it the MacGurus 2 port mulitplier card and driver? Was it the SansDigital towers? Was it the DHCP addressing system?
I was even able to add a drive to the concatenated RAID pool using Disk Utility I had had to use some backdoor Terminal route of diskutil to do it before under I had realized how easy it would be to start with a smaller cluster of drives and expand to more as necessary. At least with the concatenation and When I turned the computer back on and then the drives, there was a drive missing from the RAID towers.
I tried a few things before finally shutting down and physically removing the drive that wouldn't post. I foolishly thought that if I booted the machine without the drive, it would shake things up so that I could replace the drive after a couple reboots and all would be well again -- I think I thought I'd done this with another RAID. At any rate, NOPE.

I couldn't repair it or mount it in Disk Utility no matter what I tried. Thank god I'd fixed a daily backup a few days prior. At the last minute I think I figured it out If you turn them on after the computer is on, the drives will post as fast as they can but they don't seem to post together -- so the RAID sorta breaks and drives go missing.
But if the RAID towers are already running when you power on the machine, they post together properly. The nice thing about the Rosewills is that their power button locks on or off I want the gray SansDigitals to still be good but I've been skittish to try them -- eventually I'll load 'em up and give them a go.

Again, I really think that for me it was getting that 4-port card. But I can see MacGurus point that every motherboard is different and they've had good luck for customers I just don't know about fellow hackies.
Concatenating works great as long as you have the towers on before you start your computer. Striping seems to work well but I haven't done comparisons. I like the Rosewill usability -- easy to open the doors and swap drives.
Actually VERY easy, very useable I don't know if there is a total size limit for the enclosures -- I thought there was. Oh, just a 2TB partition max.
