Software RAID 5 is a fault-tolerant volume that stripes data and parity across multiple dynamic disks (from 3 to 32). Software RAID-5 volumes can not be expanded with Disk Management snap-in, but you can use AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager Server to expand RAID-5 volume. As award-winning and full-featured Software RAID management solution, AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager allows you to resize dynamic disk, extend dynamic system partition, convert dynamic disk to basic without losing data, expand RAID-5 volume, extend mirrored (RAID 1) volume, add drive to RAID 5 and remove drive from RAID 5, etc.
Software RAID was available in the past versions, but in the Enterprise, not the Professional editions of Windows.
Now you should see all the physical disks available on your system, their partitions and logical drives. Configuring RAID starts by creating the dynamic disks, adding volumes, adding mirrors and so on. If your box goes, you just get another box, install Windows 7 and pop  in your disk into it. Now, would it have been lost if he had originally set it up as a striped volume through Windows dynamic disks?
Regarding hardware raid 0 and make it boot windows- You need to setup the raid and then install Windows. Also, if you guys use Raid 0 for perfomance then you should reconsider the hardware raid 0 instead of software raid. But for other circumstances (computer not build primarily for blazing performance) its a great option. Creating a Windows Software Raid (Skip if Raid exists!)1.1 Convert Hard disks into dynamic disksSo in case you have no Software Raid configured yet, open the Computer Management und go to the Disk Management.
Parity, a calculated value that can be used to reconstruct data after a failure, is also striped across the disk array.

Thata€™s because Software RAID 5 only can be implemented in Windows Server operating systems, including Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. Software RAID-5 volume provides fault tolerance at a cost of one additional disk for the volume. I'm still messing around with settings and have yet to confirm that this is in fact RAID, as opposed to merely mirroring. Since its Windows that take care of your raid instead of the raid controller the performance relies of your computer speed. Win 7 Ultimate in my case have all the options greyed out and is not the tool for that purpose at my opinion too poor and lacks of support tools like monitoring such array ! You will see your System drive and you should have a second hard disk with enough free space available.
When a disk fails, system uses the parity information to re-create the data on the failed disk. This means that if you use 3 x 1TB disks to create a Software RAID-5 volume, the volume will have a 2TB capacity. I disconnected the RAID and went back to origional bios configuration where the SATA configuration was set from RAID to IDE. MS doesn't want you to have performance as this extend life for such hardware on older hardware as user who have enough performance do not buy new hardware – they want you to buy new hardware and new win !!!
A wizard will appear, select both hard disks, the system one and the one you are going to use as raid mirror. Once you have accepted this, a couple of questions will follow which you need to accept and finally a reboot is required. MS is nasty company and Ultimate Win not so Ultimate and waist of money time and nerves !!!

After the mirror has been added, Windows will start regenerating the mirror which means it will sync both hard disks.
After the synchronization has finished, the red partitions will be marked as healthy in the Disk Management view. Uncheck all event log types except System, as this is the only event log needed to achieve our goal. Here is the Event message we suggest to use, but feel free to create and modify your own: You need to replace the mail server, sender and recipient with yourself. Back to Top2.3 How to verify that the alert is working?There is a simple way to test if our alerting is working, however it isn't without risks.
I do NOT recommend to perform this test on a productive system!First of all shutdown the server and open the case. Then boot the server, once windows is starting the services you should get an alert by email. It should look like the sample email in the screenshot.If the test was successful, you can shutdown your server again. So you need to open the Disk Management and right click the disk with the exclamation mark.
