I was wondering if it was possible to mirror two identical drives (IDE) in Win2000 without RAID or third party software.
BTW, mirroring IS RAID 1.To create a mirrored volume
Open Disk Management.
Right-click the unallocated space on one of the dynamic disks where you want to create the mirrored volume, and then click Create Volume.
In the Create Volume wizard, click Next, click Mirrored volume, and then follow the instructions on your screen.
You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.
To open Disk Management, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. In the console tree under Storage, click Disk Management.
You can create mirrored volumes only on computers running Windows 2000 Server.
You need at least two dynamic disks to create a mirrored volume.
Mirrored volumes are fault tolerant.
Mirrored volumes cannot be extended or striped.
The same drive letter is used for both copies (mirrors) of a mirrored volume.
