This question already has an answer here:
I have 2 1TB drives that I set up in
RAID0. Unfortunately, my old system is in pretty crappy shape and I might not be able to boot onto it. This means that the motherboard and old RAID controller are not available.
I can set up a
RAID0 on the new system, but it's prompting me to create a new RAID. Will this erase/format the disks, or will it just set up the RAID and leave any existing data on the disks? This is extremely important because I have about 1.5TB of data on these disks that I absolutely cannot lose, and want to transfer onto a new 2TB disk.
