I'm considering a Sans Digital eSata RAID enclosure to expand the capacity of a system with no room for more internal disks.
I would put two 2TB drives in the enclosure and set up RAID 1 mirroring.
But sometime in the future, I will upgrade the system to a larger case. Then it will have room for more internal drives, so I'd like to move the drives from the enclosure to the computer.
So - will the RAID controller in the enclosure use some sort of proprietary format that makes the disks unreadable to a different controller? Or will it be identical to a single, non-RAIDed drive?
