    how to make RAID-0 of USB flash memory?


    I don't want "why?" as response so background first.

    I have a PC with ultra fast Pentium 4 3.8Ghz, 4GB of RAM, 60GB IDE HDD as a boot drive and freshly installed Windows 10 PRO (PLEASE don't ask why) which was used only for Power Point presentation. Now it is assigned a new job. Not just presentation, but also real time 480p 29.97fps video capturing which the processor can handle with ease but the Hard disk, It uses old IDE and runs at smooth 10mbps (bits not bytes) that's like 1.2 megabytes per second. so for 480i 29.97 fps capturing, which has bit rate of 8,000,000bps which is 1 megabytes per second so in theory it should work right? NO! because this hard drive is a boot drive and constantly loading stuff so I get choppy and unstable video at the end.

    now I happen to have set of 3 4GB USB 2.0 flash memories and the video usually eat up about 6GB after about 1.5 hours of recording per session.

    I have 0, ZERO budget to get a new flash drive or get a SSD with SATA to USB convertor because this project is not mine.


    Now to the question :

    "How can I make a software RAID-0 of 2 (or more) USB flash memory which is removable."


    Microsoft's in-house solution (disk management) does not allow me to make a RAID of removable drives so I tried to find a third party software that does this but am I blind I couldn't find one, and bitt flipping or what not to trick removable drives into fixed doesn't work.


    I hope that someone knows a great third party software that creates a RAID-0 of whatever drive it'd be the best but, enough babbling.


    How do I make a raid-0 of 2 USB flash memories?

    :)

    Raid 0 help

    Hi all, I've followed the IRST raid installation directions and I have created myself a Raid 0 volume. Rapid storage confirms my successful migration from a system disc to a raid 0 array. I'm also able to select it as my boot device in BIOS, but what I don't understand is why it is not listed in my Drives under my computer

    In fact, my computer still lists my original C: drive with the original capacity. I feel as if I've miss an important step here and I'm unsure how to proceed.

    Raid 0 help

    You need to resize your NTFS partition. Run (Super + R; the run dialog box) and execute "diskmgmt.msc". You'll see that your RAID-0 is only partitioned to half of the array's size. Converting a disk to RAID doesn't do anything to the size of your partitions.

    so what is the step by step to set up raid 0?
    First, format both ssd to the same format: NTFS

    Third, save bios and reboot, press Ctril+ I to enter Raid setup
    Fourth, make a raid disk

    is it right?
