To my knowledge, you have the full capacity of both drives. The data is just split into fragments over both drives.

Nah, you still have the added storage. So if you have 2 500 GB drives, you still have 1 TB storage.

the only thing RAID0 is that both 500GB HDD"s act like one so you would have a single 1TB HDD in that situation.
