I am trying to rebuild a RAID 10 with a new build. How can I do it and save the array already on the four disks? Its going on a Gigabyte MB (X58AUD5) and I currently am using a two TB SATA3 drive as my operating system on it. I had a EVGA board but those RAID connectors are so hard to get to and one broke off as I was trying to put it back in the socket of the SATA connection. Oops...lol. Any ideas?

Probably are not going to be able to rebuilt without backing up the data. That's a drawback of motherboard RAID.

Even if you find a way to do it, you'd be crazy to try without first backing everything up. And if you're going to do that, you might as well just move the data via backup/restore and be done with it.

So, basically you are both suggesting I ghost the drives to other drives/storage and build the RAID on the new system and then transfer the data back to the original drives to access it, correct?

Yep, that sounds like a plan.
