seems like you have created a logical volume when you setup to combine the two harddrives together.  I don't think there is a way of separating them.  You may want to backup the home directory to some other computers on the network.  You can use rsync to backup the home directory.  The tutorial for rsync is here http://everythinglinux.org/rsync/

Hi,

Take @ backup on seperate place or other media and it is not possible to seperate HDD once volume is running. so best option is use tar+gz command to zip u r files and directory and ftp to some other server and keep backup.. why i m suggestting - if single pt of failue u will lost everything !!! so it is meaning less to keep backup in same machine.
