    I'm interested in picking up a Glyph GT 062 Hard Drive but I can't figure one thing out. Since it supports RAID 0 and 1 is it actually the size its shown to be or is it half of that? For example if I got a 500gb one, would it actually be 250gb?

    If you've used one of these drives and have experience with them let me know.

    I'm a little rusty and no expert on this, but from what I understand RAID works differently. It requires 2 (generally identical) drives to be connected and provides near enough the full size - 460GB would be realistic availibilty.
    RAID configurations are only for backup - if one drive fails then the other has a copy of the data. It's possible that you can run a RAID setup on one drive, someone should be able to confirm this.
    However you should be able to use the drive on it's own without any RAID carry on.
    If for some reason you're forced to use a RAID however, then yes, you will lose half the space.

    Protools won't write to a RAID drive. You can back up to one, but not record real time.

    Check out the Glyph web site. I think their RAID drives can be configured so as not to act like a RAID drive
