I had 1 seagate 160 GB HDD. I put a bunch of valuable information on it. I recently bought a second seagate 160 GB HDD, both SATA. I set up a raid and when I went to Windows XP it wanted me to initialize the drives. I am scared to do this as my data is important, thus the reason I bought a second for the raid. But when I remove the 2nd drive, it still does not recognize my drive anymore, and still wants me to initialize. It must have changed something somewhere.
Please, anybody know a lot about this stuff and can guide me safely?
Even if I can just copy the info to another HDD. Please help.
