Has anyone ever managed to implement software RAID 5 in Windows 7? MS docs say that Windows 7 supports software implementations of RAID 0, 1 and 5 but on the editions I know itís disabled!

Did some research. Apparently MS removed software RAID 5 support in Windows 7 in one of their updates. The original release of Windows 7 did support it but not anymore unfortunately. You'd have to get a PCI-X card to add hardware RAID 5 functionality if it is essential.

Thanks Yeprem for the feedback. I don't understand why MS left the option visible and grayed out!
