Is it possible to convert Raid0 (striped) to Raid1 (mirrored)?

I have a dell poweredge 2650 which is currently configured as raid0.  Is it possible to convert this to a Raid1 Mirror without a complete wipe and restore?

i have one of those servers at work and when you set up raid in the admin panel, then disks need to be initialized. when you do that you lose all the data on the drive. ultimately, this probably means you will need to image your drives, recreate the raid, then restore.
You need to backup the data and reconfigure the disk to raid1. All data on disk is lost. Also remember that RAID1 only gives you 50% og the storage space, but you get safety in return. Simple answer to your question: No.
