Windows 7: How to re-mirror a drive to RAID

Thanks for the post gregrocker, may I ask if these problems still occur if a user installs a proper hardware RAID card like an Adapatec one, with on card memory and processing to handle RAID without recourse to the OS BIOS? I still like the idea of RAID1 if it were robust. I assume a proper hardware RAID is isolated from whatever OS is in use? Many thanks.

That I cannot answer as I do not and would not use RAID. Others here may have an opinion.

What advantage does RAID confer? The only true advantage I've seen here is where huge video files are needed to be edited, and drives are now large enough to handle that.

Encrypt, dynamic disks, & mirror (RAID 1)
I have Home Windows 7 premium which means I cannot Encrypt, create dynamic disks, or mirror (RAID 1) my hard drives, so if this is true and I want to use any of these I need to go back to my Vista Ultimate?
