A friend of mine asked me a question and I couldnt answer.

He has two 80 gig (Maxtor SATA drives). Both have registered copies of Windows XP on them as a dual boot configuration. They are set up differently for different taks. He wants to MERGE them as a RAID set.

Is it possible to do and not lose any program files?

I wouldn't suggest raiding them together, what I would do is get a 160GB hard drive, make 2 partitions of 80 gigs on it, and then ghost the images from the two hard drives onto it. Alot easier and this way your friend now has 160GB of storage space available to use on the seperate 80 gig hard drives.
