    Setup a RAID1 with a already existing system (GUI only)

    Hello

    I want to setup a RAID1 on a existing Ubuntu system with a new drive and a boot drive. Ive read about doing it thru terminal but I cant really see when a drive fails or not so I perfer (and its easier) to do it with a GUI tool. How can I do this?

    Also this would be a soft RAID1.

    Thanks

    Earlier, you could set up a Soft RAID using the Disk Utility, but since the dev responsible for it removed the RAID management feature... The only other GUI for managing a raid is Webmin. It's a browser-based GUI for managing most stuff on a Linux system.

    However, you can't (easily) set up a RAID on your /(root) partition if you already have a system on it without reinstalling it.
