Windows or any other O/S will not "see" the physical disks, it will see the logical drives presentet to it by the RAID controller (Smart Array).

I haven't worked with the P420, but if they havn't changed a lot, it will autoconfigure 2 (same size) drives as a RAID 1 (mirroring).

In you case, you've got a 300 GB RAID 1 :)

From windows run array configuration utility (or SSA) to inspect your array configuration, you will find a mirrored logical drive based on 2 physical disks. Windows itself can only see the single logical drive.

Hope this helps!
