ML330 converting Raid0 to Raid1


Hello Everybody,

I have a small question.

Right now I have only one IDE HDD connected to the ATA RAID Controller, and it appears as RAID0.

I wont to add a second HDD and reconfigure the RAID from 0 to 1.

Could this be done without losing data ?

Sincerely,
Dimitar Sabev

Hello,

No it can't, you must backup all your data on a tape for example. Because configuring a RAID1 will erase all the data on disks...

Check with the manufacturer of the ATA RAID. It depends on the Firmware. I run a Promise Fastrack and was able to add the second after I had the first running.
