Raid 0 formatting


Hi everyone. I checked 3 pages and didn't see much about this. Overtime as your raid 0 or revodrive lose performance because of no TRIM support, would formatting it restore the speeds back to normal?

No. Formatting is just issues another TRIM command, and it still won't get past the RAID0.

To restore the performance of the Revodrive you need to break the RAID array and then give the secure erase command to the individual controllers and then redo the RAID.

Revodrive controllers should also have Garbage Collection - you need to check up on OCZ site on that - if it has GC, you get the best result if you log out from Windows and leave the pc on overnight

Ya, I'm aware of that. I'll be sure to take full advantage of that. Thank you for the link.
