If I buy one of the external RAID drive enclosures, can I just take my two RAID 0 drives out of my system and plug them into the external bay and have access to them? Or would I have to re-format, re-mount them or do something that would affect the data on them to get them to work with the external RAID bay?

Thanks in advance!

You would most likely have to reformat. unless by some miracle the raid controller on your motherboard and the one inside the external raid are one and the same.

If they're your boot drives, you'd probably have to reformat.
