Windows 7: Dynamic Disk RAID10

Dynamic Disk RAID10

Did some searching around here regarding hybrid raids using Dynamic Disk, but didn't find much.

My question: is it possible to achieve RAID10 or RAID01 using dynamic disks? Say I have four drives and I make two mirrors (or stripes) of two each. Is it then possible to to mirror those two stripes (or stripe the two mirrors) by making a mirror or striped volume?

Hello Liege, welcome to Seven Forums!


Sorry to say few here find a need for RAID these days, not to mention Windows 7 and RAID are not exactly the best of friends so you may not get much help on this subject, nothing personal.
