When you first set up RAID, when you create the array you lose all the data on the drive if there was any on it. You need to back it up first.
For clarification: Do you lose the data on the SSD (where windows and my other programs are), or the two drives I am adding (which don't have anything anyway) or all 3 drives?
Also, I read through the links but am still unsure of whether the SSD is considered part of the Raid array or not. I want to have all my programs on the SSD and only use the two other drives in a raid 1 to store my pictures, video, etc..... I have no plans of putting any of that data on the SSD.
Thanks again.... apologize for the newbness.
