Re: Raid 1

You can do it with Windows software raid. If you have a raid controller, and you want to do it using hardware raid, you must restore your operating system in some way (reinstalling/restoring image, etc). See:

Re: Raid 1

Akhell,

Follow this...Creating RAID volumes in Windows Server 2003.

You only really need to do this if you are using software RAID. Hardware RAID has its own utilities which are often placed in the Control Panel.

1. Click Start (menu), All Programs, Administrative Tools, Computer Management.
2. Open 'Storage' and click Disk Management.
3. Right-click the unallocated space on one of the dynamic disks where the RAID-0, RAID-1, or RAID-5 volume should be created, and then click 'Create Volume.'
4. In the Create Volume wizard, click 'Next,' and then click on the desired volume type: 'Striped volume,' 'Mirrored volume,' or 'RAID-5 volume.'
