Does anyone know if you can mirror to dynamic volumes in
Windows XP Professional?

Their XP Help file states:
"Mirrored and RAID-5 volumes are fault tolerant and are
available only on computers running Windows 2000 Server,
Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows 2000 Datacenter
Server, or Windows XP. "

Their knowledge base states the opposite:
"You cannot create mirrored volumes or Raid-5 volumes on
Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, or
Windows XP 64-Bit Edition-based computers."

Windows XP does not have a native software approach
to mirroring drives.

In order to configure a mirror, you'll need to setup a
RAID configuration. This requires two identical hard
drives, a motherboard with RAID or a RAID controller
card. Then you must install Windows XP from scratch.
Consult your motherboard's User's Manual for detailed
instructions.
