I currently have a 1tb WD Caviar black SATA III 6GB/s HDD, and I just ordered another for RAID 0 and an SSD on Newegg. When I install the 2nd drive and configure RAID, will my data be erased from my first drive? Also, will I have to transfer data from my first drive to my second drive in order to make it striped and have optimal performance?
Sorry for the noob question, my google searches yielded no useful data.
