I have Win7 Home Premiume 64Bit.

 

I Right Click on My Computer and pick Manag.

 

Then I click on Storage and all my Hard Drives come up.

 

I have one Drive with all my Photos Music and so on and a Black Drive.

 

I Right click the Drive with my Photos and Music and so on and I was looking for the Words   Ad New Merror or something like this.

 

I do not see anything for making a RAID?

 

I wanted to make a RAID with Win7 because I do not wwant to Pay for a Program to do the same thing.

Thanks

Windows has software RAID, but offers just spanned, stripe, mirror. So it has limitations than that of a hardware based RAID setup. The drives needs to be wiped and volume deleted to rebuild the drives. Here's more detailed information on how to go about that. http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/36504/how-to-create-a-software-raid-array-in-windows-7/

What video on youtube are you refering to? Yes you shoudl have a mirroring option. Have you followed the tutorial I provided? Have you installed the raid drivers for the disks? The motherboard chiset drivers and raid drivers need to be installed. You also have to activate the array in the settings in there.
