I have an Intel ICH10R controller. The mainboard is in RAID mode. Windows was installed with the F6 drivers. I have a data storage drive full and prepared to install like model second drive. The system has a very recent option ROM and Rapid Storage Technology drivers version 12.5.
Can someone please assist in creating a mirror array? It is not clear if the data on the first drive will be retained. "Source Disk," "Retain Data" or similar options do not appear during the first steps of the creation process.
Please follow the steps in the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology user guide, pages 29-33.

The drive is brand new. The data was transferred to it a week earlier. Intel could revise their software to add a switch for /keepdata in the event disks without a standard partition table exist. I hobbled together a number of other drives, transferred the data away and created the mirror. It was a time-consuming and stressful process. I appreciate your assistance.
