Raid?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

can you raid a fast drive and a slow drive in a way that makes all writes go to the main drive then get copied over time to the slow one to increase reads?

Mirroring happens live, so that'd slow the fast drive to the speed of the slow drive.

With storage spaces in Windows 10, you can tier SSD and HDD storage for this. An alternative would be to accelerate the HDD with Optane.

I’d recommend using the slower drive as a backup like Seagate surfer said...if you don’t already have one. Otherwise just get an SSD and don’t bother wasting time with RAID 0 or 1 for your OS.
