I am going to software mirror 2 disk drives I have on my server, but I want to make sure that DOS applications will still be able to access the hard drives after I upgrade them to Dynamic Disk Volumes.  Can anyone confirm for me that the performance of my DOS based application will continue to work as expected after I do this update?

I have NEVER seen a problem with DOS applications running.  The 16bit sub system should have no problem reading the files.   I'm 99.99999% sure you're not going to have a problem (I've worked with Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 since shortly after NT4 was released and I've NEVER seen a 16 bit character based program have a problem accessng the disks.
