Varying Hard Drive Speeds RRS feed

  • Question

  • Let's say I have a WHS with a variety of disks:


    internal PATA/IDE of differeing speeds

    External USB 2 drives

    External USB 1 drives (is it possible for an old USB drive to run at USB 1 speeds or would it automatically run faster under USB 2?)


    Obviously access times to these disks would be different, so some would be better suited to just storing backup copies and stuff, and others will be better suited to serving audio and video media.


    Is WHS smart enough to make decisions about where it puts stuff relating to access times of disks?
