    Thanks everyone for your feedback. I corrected my profile, it was a typo my Taichi is a z370.

    It looks like I'll break the RAID and start over. 1 NVMe will be for the OS and the other 2 will be RAID0 for a D drive.
    I have a backup solution that will backup my system to a remote PC.

    Here are some notes on using the m.2 slots on the Taichi.
    M2_1, SATA3_0 and SATA3_1 share lanes. If either one of them is in use, the others will be disabled.
    M2_2, SATA3_4 and SATA3_5 share lanes. If either one of them is in use, the others will be disabled.
    If M2_3 is occupied by a SATA-type M.2 device, SATA3_3 will be disabled.
    Any difference as to which slot I use for my OS drive vs the 2 I use for the D drive?
    Thanks

    Thanks all for the feedback.
    I have my C drive on 1 512GB NVMe drive and my D drive on 2x512GB NVMe drives in RAID0.
    Setup junctions also. The junctions was an interesting use. With the "location" tab of the different folders I could have set the path to the D: drive but then the folders wouldn't exist under C:\users\denisl. By using junction I kept the path to my C: driver but overrode with the junction to D. I like keeping the folders in C:\users\denisl as well as the source location on D:.

    Anyway - I'm all set and thanks for everyone's feedback.

    Yes if M2 slot 3 is SATA it will be much slower then the 2 M2 NVME slots. SATA maxes out at about 500GBS NVME is about 3000 MBS huge difference unless that info is a typo. If it is, in fact, a SATA your NVME SSD will not work in it.
