Actually, RAID0 is a striped array in which the drive are, in effect, added together then seen as one drive. If that is the case, if you split the array, you will likely loss all your data! So you best option is to get a 3rd drive, copy all your data from your current drives, split the array into two separate drives, then copy your data back.
Both hard drives are added together so I don't believe that they are in RAID format
And if me, once I had the two drives split, I would format the drives and start with a fresh Windows install.

However, for "installed" programs, it is best to reinstall those programs on the new drive so the Registry is set up properly.

1. I format the 160 gig hard drive and put it in a hard drive reader.
2. Move everything in the C: folder on to the external 160 gig
3. Remove 1 of the 750 gig HDD from my computer
4. Insert disk 1 to reinstall the OS
5. Move everything from the 160 gig back onto the new installed OS
but this just came to me...I plan on using this hard drive in a desktop. Is there a converterfor this hard drive. I know the desktop SATA drives have a small cable, but this harddrive has a connector probabely 2 and a half inches long. I believe it is SATA though. any input?

This is a normal size drive, right? That is, about 3.5 inches wide? Or is it a 2.5" drive from a notebook?
