Hi all, I've got a question re: RAID 1 and hoping you guys can help out. Looking to get RAID 1 setup on my PC, for years I have ignored it but am willing to take the plunge now. As far as I understand, I have to configure RAID on freshly formatted hard drives in the BIOS and once configured does Windows recognise this as 1 hard drive, or will they show as 2? My second question is, lets say for example my PC refuses to boot - motherboard/ram CPU goes and I need to access the data on my 2 raid 1 hard drives. IF I plug these into another PC, do I need to plug them both in? Will I be able to read the data off one like a normal hard drive? Basically I just want to use RAID 1 as an easier way of copying things to one hard drive and then it mirroring onto another. I have been doing it manually for years, and it is becoming tiring checking # of files # of folders match etc etc.
