Re: raid 5 partition table example

When you do Raid 5 using 3 hard drives (that's the minimum), you put all 3
drives into a logical array. Then the system will only see 1 logical hard
drive. After that, it doesn't matter how you create your partitions on it...
You can create several logical drives but you will need more hard drives.
