Problem Setting Up RAID 1
Running Windows 7 Ultimate (recently upgraded from Home Premium). I installed a second hard drive identical (even same part number) to the original and in Disc Manager it appears as an unallocated drive as it should but when right clicking the new drive the menu only offers "New Simple Volume"; "New Mirrored Volume" is grayed out.
I've been told that right-clicking should show "Initialize" on the menu and clicking that should produce additional menus to allow the second drive to become a mirrored volume. What's wrong?
Both the drives are SATA 3 but my motherboard only has one SATA 3 socket, the original HD is connected to it and the second HD is connected to a regular SATA socket...could that be a problem?
