    Raid 1 to network drive


    Is it possible to set up a RAID1 configuration to mirror my hard drive to a network drive? Or to use Windows 8 Storage Spaces with a network drive.

    Yes it's possible just by hitting F8 on boot up which should get you into the raid configuration page. It helps if both of the drives are the same. RAID1 is easy to set up, only takes a minute.
