How do you add RAID or mirror Technology?
Posted on 2003-02-20
A month or so ago I got an email or newsletter (or something) on how to implement RAID or mirroring technology. It has disappeared into the black hole which lurks around my PC. I think I'd like to add the protective features of RAID or mirroring to my PC, which is as follows:
1. Compaq Presario 5000 series, 1.0 GHz, Windows XP, 512 MB.
2. HDD #0 - 40 GB, NTFS, all as Drive C:. [No drive D:].
3. HDD #1 - 30 GB, NTFS, five equal partitions as drives:
E:, F:, G:, H:, & I:.
4. I'd like to add a third HDD, 80 GB, and partition to match the first two HDDs, and then do the mirroring trick.
Question: Is this feasible, and what does it take to setup the third HDD to do this? What hardware/software is needed? Where can I get a good description or information on this subject? I'd say this question is easy for someone who has been down the road on this subject, but I'll give 100 points for a good comprehensive answer.
