Thanks for the replies in advance.

  2. No.

    RAID 0 usually means striping the data across the pair of drives (otherwise it's just JBOD).

    Your current data isn't striped. You'll lose it. Back it up to another drive (better, make TWO copies!), then make the RAID 0 pair, then copy it back.

    To do this with an OS drive, I would recommend using Norton Ghost.
