RAID 1 will only give you 500 GB worth of space.

Copy your data. Buy 2 2TB hard drives then put them in RAID 1 then copy them back on?

I wouldn't put anything remotely worthwhile on a 4 disk mechanical RAID 0 array.

But really your only option is to back up to another medium and reassemble the array.
