hey all-

in the somewhat pending case that i may not be able to retrieve my data 
from RAID 5 unit, I'm wondering what my best option is for blocksize on 
a .75TB RAID 5 volume. does the 64k RAID stripe size have any impact on 
these figures? It was previously set to the default( 16384 blocksize, 
2048 fragment ) without any noticeable perf issues, but i'm just 
wondering if, well, size matters? ;)
