Setup Raid5 from existing hard drive? Please help.
Is it possible to setup Raid 5 from my existing hard drive which contains my O.S. and other software.
I have everything installed on 1 hard drive and just purchased 3 more hard drives.
I also purchased a Raid Controller card (3ware 9650SE 4LPML).
I would like to create the raid 5 without having to start over.
Any help is appreciated.

I'm using it as a work computer, mostly Autocad and Solidworks drawings. I have an additional hard drive for back up, but would like the to do Raid 5 for additional backup.
