I have filled up my HDD and so I need a second one so can I get a second one that's the same and RAID 0 it without having to format it. I have never used a RAID system before and was just wondering what your recommendations were and if I should RAID what I need to do in order to.

hmmm have you got any backups of your data?

and for your situation, RAID isnt the solution, and you already have data on the hdd - creating an array will destroy the data

You could make a cloned HD of your current data and put that on a bigger HD.
