Can you create a raid 0 with windows 7 premium?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone.

 

As the title says I am wondering if you can create a raid 0 with windows 7 premium. There isn't any particular reason for creating a raid 0 this is just simply for learning purposes. I've looked at how it is done on Youtube and it seems straight forward. Although for some odd reason when I try to click create stripped volume it is completely greyed out. So when I try clicking on it nothing happens, which leads to wonder if windows 7 premium has software support for raid 0. Also I do have two hard drives installed on the computer one being unallocated and the other one being my primary partition.

Adding drives to any type of array will require the drive be reformatted.

Yes.

 

To do what you want, add two extra harddisks to your PC (or do it in a VM) and RAID them in disk manager. That way, you don't lose important data on existing drives.
