Okay this is what I I got going on. on sda1 is my windows partition. sda2-3 is swap and my / parition. Now I have another hardrive installed 160GB and what I want to do is make 2 81GB paritions on sda1 and sdb1 and make those raid 0 for 160 GB for / and 2 GB for swap.

I looked this over
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/SoftwareRAID

But it suggest that I wipe all data on my hard drive. As much as I want to get rid of windows I still need it. sigh! How could I setup a raid 0 on my linux partitions on a existing system?

Can you create a ntbackup with system state on the windows or windows vista/7 backup first?

Can you use lvm?

My issue with now wanting to use the extra drive for a striped is that the new one is blank. Striped drives should fill in level. This would be easier if you could backup windows for protection then backup linux to apply back to raid.

And at raid 0 a single loss is total loss.

Can you must mount that drive as home or such?

Yes I can do full backup on both systems and transfer the backups to a file server thats no problem.
