    Hi,
    I have a Stardom Decktank filled with two WD 1.5tb drives formatted as concatenated (JBOD). Raid version is AppleRaid 2.0.

    I chose to format the disks as ntfs the first time but when I had to defragment the disks waaaaaay to often to get full speed with torrents and usenet I figured HFS+ would work better.

    The only problem is now that I can't get the JBOD disk to work in Windows 7 via Boot Camp. Is there any drivers i need to install to get it to work? I have googled but found nothing. :(

    Please help! :)

    Ah, sorry, didn't read the small print.

    I used MacDrive for a while some years ago, that's why I know it.

    But didn't know of this RAID incompatibility.

    Why does it have to be a RAID anyway?

    Torrents and Usenet shouldn't be that demanding (150MB/s is quite much).

    I had the disks formatted as separate ntfs drives first but I have a 100/100mbit connection and it did'nt take long before the speeds started to decrease when downloading. It does'nt have to be a RAID but I thought it would be nice to have at least one drive letter less (I have 4 other external drives:eek:).
