    Default Raid 1

    Is it possible to set up a raid 1 config without formatting the hard drive? I don't want to loose the data, some of it can't be replaced.

    Use Norton Ghost to back it up first, then reimage the array and that should work.

    this is not correct. as long as you denote WHICH drive has data and which is being used as the mirror, and indicate that in the RAID setup, your data is fine on the data drive. all is does is close the data drive.
