    I have Alienware R3 with Windows 7 Extreme and Paragon HD Manager 11 and RAID MOTO/BIOS. I want to upgrade my hardware RAID 0 (2 x 0.5GB HDs) to hardware RAID 1 Mirror (2 x 2TB HDs). I have a 2TB non-raid internal HD.
    Can I use Paragon HD Mgr to COPY my RAID 0 Array to the 2TB non-raid HD, make it the primary and boot drive, then shutdown, replace the two 0.5TB HDs with the new 2TB HDs, then COPY back to ONE of the new 2TB HDs, then change the NEW 2TB HD into RAID 1, then ADD the other new 2TB HD to the RAID 1 array? Then change the boot sequence to the new RAID 1 Array.
    Any help with the process is appreciated. I also have external backups, if all fails.
