Software RAID disks order?

Hello,

Anybody knows the formula Microsoft used to determines the order
of the disks in a software RAID. The order does not seem to be
random, since it is always the same when I redefine the RAID.
TIA,
Chu Bun

I apologize if this seems a little “flip”, but didn’t you just answer
your own question?

It seems to be a function of the location of the component partitions.
If I always have one partition per disk, then it’s easy. But if there are
many partitions on each disk, and they are randomly picked to create the
RAID (ex: partition1 on disk1 + partition3 on disk2 + partition 0 on disk3),
I cannot figure out the disk order without having to look at the first
sector
on each partition.
