SSD mirroring to HDD in Windows software RAID?

Last response: in Windows 7

I have read that Windows 7 Professional (and above) has software RAID features, including a hard drive mirror function. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience using this. I am particularly interested in mirroring from a SSD to a HDD.

I know that traditional hard ware RAID setups require two or more identical disks. But I don't know if Windows software RAID has the same limitations, or is more versatile in this regard (?)


Looking forward to your response.

I find your question has been answered on another forum, so what is it that you hope to achieve that makes you post the same question again?

Can you point us to that other forum, please?

I am interested in knowing if TRIM works with OS Software RAIDs.

Sure thing. The thread you want is the following;

So far the question of TRIM support in Windows software RAID has not been answered. However, they have been very helpful in answering my first question.

Not sure if there is a rule against posting the same question on two forums? If there is, then I will ask the mods to delete this one, as it has been addressed on the other forum, but not here.
