I've recently been given an opportunity to help out a friend with their first build and offered to split up my RAID 0 to provide them with a gaming hard drive. I decided to replace the two 500gb drives in RAID with WD 1TB. The only concern I have is mirroring my RAID onto the new 1TB and swapping it without any of the paths broken. Is there a reliable program out there that can do this? I should mention that my OS on a separate Raptor drive and the RAID houses applications and downloads.

This is my build:
AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.2GHz
HIS Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
WD Raptor WD740ADFD 74GB
WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
WD Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB x2 in Raid 0
Corsair HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W
