To Create a RAID 1 ( Mirror ) Set in Windows 2000

NOTE: All members of a RAID 1 ( to mirror partitions ) volume set must be on a dynamic disk.

1)Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.
2)Expand the Storage branch, and then click Disk Management.
3)Right-click the partition that you want to mirror, and then click Add Mirror.
4)Click the disk that will host the mirror, and then click Add Mirror.
5)On the Partition menu, click Commit changes now to begin duplication.
6)Reboot the computer after the duplication process is completed.

Hope this Helps
