It will be RAID 1, preferably the same hard drive sizes.

You can do it in Windows or if your motherboard supports it, onboard RAID.

In Windows:
1. Make sure you have no data on 2nd harddisk.

2. Go to start - right click computer and select manage

3. Select disk management

4. Right click ( where it says Disk 0, Disk 1 ) and convert each disk to Dynamic Disk

5. Create Mirror (right clicking the partitions and select "Add mirror" on to disk 1, then do the same with the C:\ partition.

Using the On-board RAID is a bit trickier.
