Default Re: Hard drive mirroring

Well, I have my computer set up in RAID 1, which mirrors data from one hard drive to another.
Windows sees you only have one drive, when there is in fact two working in tandem.
I find it adds a layer of safety since I've had bad luck with hard drives in the past...

I created my RAID array before installing Windows however, so even though it is probably possible to install RAID after installing, I'm finding it very hard to find the information

I have all my music on a storage hard drive.
So far I have loaned it to two friends who,
Connected it to an unused proper connectom to be the latest A to Z name.
Copy it's all or part contents to the other drive. eg: E to D .
Yes it takes time and no other PC use.
Tip : Highlite all files and set to readable,
not Read Only.
