Raid installation/ hard drive space missing

i setup a raid with a 1tb and a 250 gb hard drive
the only option i had was to creat a volume for double the 250 gb size
is there anyway to increase the space on the 1tb hd without losing the data
also I wanted to know if i had it installed correctly...both drives are on the same volume
i have a p6x58d premium mobo
the software im using is the intel rapid storage for the devices
my main question is should these drives have their own volume and have separate partitions?

  1. what raid level?
    what do you mean "both drives are on the same volume"?
  2. yes both drives are on the same volume
    its how it set it up
  3. what raid level?
    Can you post a screen shot of the partitions?
  4. for some reason i cant post a pic of the drives not sure how
    I could tell you he type if thats what you mean by level
    Its Raid0
    The hardrives are a seagate st 3250310as
    and a hitachi hds721010cla332

    the data strip size is 128kb
  5. ok, so the entire 250gb drive, and 250gb of the 1tb drive, make up a raid 0 array with 500 gb of space.

    Are you asking how to utilize the other 750gb of space from the 1tb drive?
