Question regarding WinXP, old hard drive, and two new RAID1 drives...
Long story short, at least as short as I can make it. I currently have two drives, a 200 gb and a 20 (old drive but I use it for backing up the most important things i.e. pictures, music). I plan to upgrade to a pair of drives to set up a mirror format.
The WinXP I have is actually from a Dell that we have upstairs (family computer). Bark at me all you want, but I used that CD to install WinXP on my computer downstairs. Using RockXP, since there's no key for the CD (it worked off of the serial code on the Dell), I was able to view the actual CD Key. I assume that when I install WinXP on the new drives, that I just use that key and there shouldn't be any problems? I'd just hate to buy these drives and realize I have to budget for a retail version of the OS.
Another question is this. Say I hookup the two new drives, well I want to get my pictures and music from the 200 gb drive... would I just hook that up as a third drive, and transfer everything to the main mirror drive? Then, would everything just automatically mirror to the 2nd drive as well?
There's no place like /home.
