So, there is a home computer with one hard disk. There was a desire to add a second hard drive in the "mirror".
Is it possible to do soft RAID so not to have to use a temporary intermediate the hard drive for data transfer?
I mean, I see it this way: add to the computer a new hard drive, set up, waiting for synchronization of your data on these drives.
If not, then which option is better in terms of reliability and ease of configuration:
- to use the utility to configure the onboard RAID controller (easy to set up, but need another medium for temporarily storing data; it is possible that this option will only work in Windows, because it works only through the driver or look for the right module)
- to do RAID operating system Linux (this I would like to know)
It is good if will be found ready guidance for such a situation.
Here, in General, that's all.
