    I moved nearly 100 GB of music files from an ATA drive to the Raid 5 Array. I think I was getting 34 Mb per second transfer rate. It took nearly an hour.

    RAID5 is the slowest of the common RAID types for writing, just because of the need for a parity calculation. That's more noticeable on software-based arrays (including the controllers built into motherboards), where you'll probably see a CPU spike while you're writing as well.

    Copying in the other direction doesn't have the same hit.
    Safe computing is a habit, not a toolkit.

    Still, it is blazing fast compared to the old IDE setup I came from. Learning Windows Vista is quite a chore. MS did a good job hiding many admin things from the average user.

    Looking at Acronis True Image 10 to see if it can clone Raid Arrays. No reference to it in the sales info.?
