Before adding a new drive to an array, back up any data contained on
the new drive. Otherwise, all data will be lost.
A RAID 1 created using the Quick Init option may return some data
miscompares if you later run a consistency check. This is normal and
is not a cause for concern.
The Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility allows you to use drives of
different sizes in a RAID 1. If you choose the smaller drive as the
second drive, you will be warned about the risk of data loss.
Do not interrupt the creation of a RAID 0 using the Migrate option. If
you do, there is no way to restart and no way to recover the data that
was on the source drive.
When you are finished, press Done.
