I'm currently running 2 500GB HDDs and 1 SSD for system and programs running on Windows10 with no extra sofware. I need to replace the 500s with 2 1TBs. I have a 1TB external for the backup but I don't know what kind of backup I should use, or how to go about reallocating the drives and getting it to restore properly. Do I need software to run it? google wasn't much help.
1) Dont use Raid0 ever, thats extremely dangerouse .
2) Create virtual array based on your 2 HDD and transfer sector by sector all space to your new raid with 2x1Tb drives. Use Winhex, UFS, R-studio ...whatever.
