Windows 7: Adding 2 new drives as raid 1

Adding 2 new drives as raid 1


I'm currently running windows 7 ultimate on my machine with a 750gb internal drive. I'm hoping to be able to add an external enclosure with 2 x1tb drives connected via esata, running as raid 1.

I'd be relying on windows 7 to handle the mirroring, all programs would be left on my 750gb drive, while all files etc would be on the external raid 1 rig.

Is it possible to do this through windows 7, or do a I need an enclosure with raid capabilities?
