AMD-RAIDXpert2 swap two arrays

Question asked by omahaprogrammer on Jul 26, 2020

I created two RAID arrays on my ASUS ROG Strix B550-F: one is a two-drive RAID-1 NVMe SSD array, the other is a four-drive RAID-10 HDD array. I installed my operating system in the NVMe array and I have the RAID-10 array as a storage drive.

 

I was researching adding a hot-spare and was perusing the AMD-RAIDXpert2 when I found a statement about needing to install the operating system on Array 1. But the AMD-RAIDXpert2 utility shows the NVMe array as Array 2. I think I created the HDD array first because I was having trouble getting the drives to show up because I didn't realize (until reading the manual) that some of the SATA ports are dead when a second NVMe SSD is present.

 

My computer is running fine in this configuration, but I feel that I need to configure my array correctly. If I swap Array 1 and Array 2, will it destroy the data on the arrays, forcing me to reinstall my operating system (again)?

 

Thanks for the help
