    Hi, hentai.

    You are right, this is the best place for your help request. Hopefully someone will be along who can be of assistance. In the meantime, I'll remove the other post to prevent confusion.

    Dynamic disks are not supported for USB attached disks.

    I am not aware of any program that can do that. But maybe you can describe the problem you are trying to solve and we can look for another approach.

    You are partly correct. There is support in Windows 2000, but no in XP and later.

    I suppose you talk about Raid0. Here the data will be spread over 2 disks so that each disk has only half of the data. When you loose one disk, you lost your file. Suggest you read up on it to understand how it works. RAID - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
