My System Specs

Default

I have heard of some better raid controllers that can move data to allow for changing your RAID setup but (as far as I know, which isn't very far) the software is proprietary and tend to be for server cla$$ controllers. For on board controllers I've seen only limited capability for data migration such as changing your raid from 0+1 to 5. Others probably know more but that's what I have seen to date.
What I would do would be to image your data with Ghost or Acronis (you'll need a drive big enough to hold your data of course), then remove the bad drive and re-format 2 a 2 drive RAID0 assuming you want to go that way.
Acronis True Image is free right now from WD btw.
Don't know if that helps but good luck.
