    Migration from a Raid 1 to Raid (1+0) (Intel Storage Matrix)

    Keiran183

      Hi all,

       

      I have a working Raid 1 (2 x 2TB Samsung F4) connected to my Asus P5Q-E motherboard. I would like to purchase another 2 drives to add on to my raid storage. But however i have the following concerns:

       

      (1) Would it be better to get Western Digital Green 2 TB, so i would get a mixture of both samsung and WD just in case one fails ? Or would it be better to get the same make (i.e Samsung 2TB)?

       

      (2) Would you guys recommend me migrating from a Raid 1 to a 4 drive Raid 5 or a 4 drive Raid 10 (1+0) ?

       

      (3) Would it be able to migrate from say a Raid 1 to Raid 10 (1+0) ? If it is even possible ?

       

      (4) How do you go about doing it ?

       

      Thank you

      Many thanks in advance
