Array changes

I have added a second drive to an array with the intent of mirroring the first drive, raid 1+0. I have set up the array incorrectly and have just a raid 0. I have left the drive unformated and unassigned in the OS, Windows 2000. Can I change this array to a 1+0 to mirror the first drive without losing data on the 1st drive?

After the array expansion; migrate logical drive 1 from raid 0 to 0+1 using the unused
There’s your problem!!! This thing is set to EVIL!
