I have a new HTPC with two HD bays. I want to use a RAID 1 (mirrored) configuration on two identical 1TB drives to store all my media but I'm not sure where my OS should reside? I'm planning on using Windows 7...
- If I create 2 partitions i.e. C: 80GB for Windows, all remaining for D: data will this work with RAID 1?
- I don't currently have the second drive. If I buy this after setting up the first, can the drive be mirrored successfully?
As a third option should I use an old 100GB drive for the OS then use the 2 data drives purely for media and buy an external chassis to hold them in?
