Hello everyone. I have 2 SSD and want to be able to combine them into a RAID 0 onto a laptop.

I already have data on the 2 ssd but they were run before on RAID0 so if I put them into a laptop would it let me configure them as RAID0? If so will I lose any data? I want to be able to access the RAID0 volume and back up any data and any work done on my coursework and then do a wipe, is this possible?

Thank you so much for helping me out :)

You will lose everything on the drives when you convert to aid0, you will find that windows stops working and have to change that from AHCI to Raid.

But I would strongly counsel against doing aid0, especially on a laptop. It increases risk, if one disk fails, you lose everything, and there is little benefit to be gained.

What are you using as a backup plan?

So I have used the SSD in a RAID0 and I have removed them from a desktop PC and don't have that computer anymore. However, I want to back up the already configured RAID to a simple, cheap 1TB hard drive and back it up on there. Then completely wipe the SSDs and install them into a laptop. So I was wondering how I could back up the data from the 2 SSDs that were in a RAID configuration without losing any data on them. Is there any way possible?
