I have an Asus P5N-D mobo running Windows 7. I'm currently using a single 1 TB drive (WD1001FALS) and have another blank 50 GB drive (WD5001AALS). I'd like to setup a RAID configuration so that I have good performance but the data will be mirrored in case of drive failure.
My question is: if it is possible to use these two drives although they are different size, and if so, once I move the larger drive to the second bay and set up the RAID configuration, will the data I currently have on the larger drive transfer to the smaller, blank, drive automatically?
Also, what is the best RAID configuration to use for what I want to do (with only two drives of unequal capacity)?
