A RAID 0 (also known as a striped set) splits data evenly across two or more disks with no parity information for redundancy.
So, RAID 0 is probably not what you want. You may want RAID 1:
A RAID 1 creates an exact copy (or mirror) of all of data on two or more disks.

ASUS wrote a very good manual with step-by-step instructions on creating mirror RAID 1 set with saving existing hard drive contents. Look at "5.4 Promise RAID configurations" in
