I don't think it's possible. From what I can recall in Windows you have to mirror disks initially, not after the fact, especially the system (boot) disk. However, you can try checking out parititioning tools like EASEUS Partition Master to see if that might do the trick, but if I were you I would definitely try it on a test system first ;)

If the problem is that you're running out of space, the easiest way is just to add a second phyical disk and move whatever you can off to that.

yes you can however, you will forfeit the extra space of the larger disk because the mirror will conform the new disk to the size of the original.
