Possible to change to raid0?

Is it possible to successfully change to raid0 without reinstalling and losing everything?

It’s a plex seedbox setup so I’d rather not lose everything on there currently

    I don't think that's possible

    Change what? 2x Non-RAID? 2x RAID-1? 4x RAID10?

    Info missing, but if you have free space then you can make new partition in software raid0 and more your data there. You move it gradually, shrink older partition, extend raid0 and after some time you're done.

    That's not working for me. It's 2X non RAID. The problem is moving the data to the new partition. All permissions are set, but the data wont move, it fails every time.

    Works fine under Windows. Dunno about Linux, just a pure idea

    Cloning my friend.

    Ok, lets explain, make image of your disk , now make whatever raid you like, restore that image on that raid.

    If your RAID is configured using mdadm. Then it's quite easy.
    Assuming it's raid1, you break the raid1 by destroying it. Leaving one drive blank.
    The issue a command to grow to raid 0. It should move the files and sync what is needed.

    Hardware raid, not possible.
