I currently have a 500GB Seagate Hard disk, with 2 partitions - "C:" [50 GB] for windows and "D:" [~415 GB] for everything else.
I have only about 100 GB of free space left on that drive, so I'm going to get a 750GB or 1TB hard disk soon. I want to combine the second partition of the old drive with the new drive. I did some research and found out that RAID was my solution.
My motherboard supports RAID 0, 1 and 0+1. How do I set up a RAID array without losing the data on my old disk (especially the second partition)??
I'm willing to reinstall windows if needed, but it would be better if I don't have to. I'm also willing to reformat the first partition, but I cannot lose the data on the second one (and I have nothing to backup all the files to
Any help would be appreciated. I'm looking for a step-by-step tutorial.
