    In doubt .. get a pci express raid0/1/5/10 controller card with 4 slots and put all four drives in a new array on there.
    He stated he had a Raid 1 setup. Unless he has a very nice Raid controller, he can't add another drive(s) to the array without rebuilding. I have yet to see a motherboard based raid controller that has this functionality.

    This is possible. Just plug the 3rd and 4th drive in, build the table in the raid config panel. Will work just fine.

    Can I set up another RAID?

    http://www.msi.com.tw/program/produc...il.php?UID=641

    This is my MOBO at the momentlong . Currently I have two SATA 400gb drives in there and they are set up in a RAID1. PC was pre-built so please consider that I am fairly new to working with the insides of a PC I was reading the specs of my mobo and didn't quite understand whether or not I can stick another two SATA drives in there and set them up as well in a RAID1.

    Any advice and input would be appreciated
