    You cannot. You need to do a cut and paste, copying the data from each to a master drive... or deal with the data individually on each drive.

    I think you would benefit from doing a lot of reading about raid and hard drive configurations... from Scott Muellars book, or a good Windows compendium... Windows XP Tips and Techniques, Windows XP Professional Resource Kit, Windows XP for Hackers.
    There is just too much to know to tell you in these little blurbs on this forum.

    If you want to keep all your files an all the drives, then you have to use this mounting thing.

    If you have the space to move data around, read up on Dynamic Disks:
