I have been using Windows 7 Enterprise to mirror 2 identical drives (2x2TB)
I have also just bought a new(ish) PC with Windows XP Professional on it.

What i was wondering is can i plug in these two hard drives, connected via SATA, and still continue the mirror on XP and not damage the drives in the process?

ANY help at all is appreciated

If its a software mirror, you might be able to get away with using just as single drive in the other PC.
Dont try if you want to be able put them back as is in the original PC though .

Not without risk of course . Backup 1st.
