Default Raid-1

Hi, just a few questions about Raid-1 setup.

I was mainly going to use this setup for data backup. Im using windows XP home.

Can I use two unidentical drives for this setup?

When I implement this setup with the second drive automatically copy everything that was on the old hard drive or do I need to do this setup from two formatted drives?

Default Re: Raid-1

If one drive is larger than another, your drive will be the size of the smallest drive.
As far as I am aware you need to set raid up while installing your o/s.
