How do I create a stripe set with parity?

A. To create a stripe set with parity, complete the following steps:

  1. From the Start menu, select Programs, Administrative Tools, then Disk Administrator.
  2. Select at least three areas of free space on different physical disks.
  3. From the Fault Tolerance menu, select Create Stripe Set With Parity.
  4. Enter the disk space size you want for the stripe set, and click OK.

Note: A stripe set will use only the lowest common disk space on each physical drive (i.e., with three disks of 100MB, 50MB and 40MB free, each part of the stripe set would be only 40MB, with a maximum 120MB partition in total).

You can’t use stripe sets for the boot or system partition.
