Can I Mirror the System drive in a WHS2011 box without destorying the OS installation. I guess, basically, the question is, "Can I convert the OS Basic drive to Dynamic without destroying it?" Any 'gotchyas' to watch out for?

Thanks for the link. Looks like I can do it without issue. Since it is the boot drive, apparently shadow copies are not an issue. I will clone the drive first, as a precaution, but it looks like its a go.

What I found was that it's not possible to mirror the entire drive. I had to mirror each volume on the drive. Very oddly, the D: partition (the leftover space after WHS partitions its 60GB) could NOT be mirrored -- it was grayed out. Not really an issue for me since it isn't used at all, but it's just weird to me.
