With Windows NT Server you can easily install a mirrored Disk volume with Disk Administrator. But the corresponding commands are missed on NT Worstations Disk Administrator. How can I enable my Workstation to mirror Disks?

You can use the FTDisk program from the NTS Resource Kit. It will allow you to make a mirrorset on a NTW.

You'll also have to start the FTDISK device from control panel.

The functionality (FTDISK) is present in both Wksn and Server.  The only difference is that Disk Administrator checks to see if it is running on Wksn, if it is, it disables the menu options that are present on server.
