It won't matter what order you put the drives in the array because you should be able to select your Source & Target drives respectively.

Although you have data on one of the drives that you want to keep? Or have you backed the data up?

Do you know what RAID controller your using?

Ok. That means you might be able to re-build the array, creating a mirror on the empty drive.

It's an onboard RAID controller.

I'll look into the RAID controller and see what options you got there.

RAID controllers differ. So you might not have the options that I have.

See if you have the option to 'create with data copy'. If you do then you can select to copy online or offline. The array will be formed by copying data from one drive to the other.
