    Right now I have two HDDs, one 20 gig and one 80 gig. the 80 is megabytes away from being full, and I just got a second 80 gigger in the mail today. Is it possible to set up the two 80s in a RAID 0 config with the one drive being already full? or do they both need to be empty to set up RAID 0 so that they will stripe the right way?

    Thanks.

    When creating new stripe sets, all disks within the stripe set will be wiped clean upon initialization.

    -crontab -l

    Correct me if I am wrong, but ICH5R actually can build RAID 0 and RAID 1 without erasing the data on the HD. But I doubt that's his setup...
