    Currently I just have a 320gb HDD that apple shipped with my Mac Pro, but I would really like to have a mirror just incase. If I purchase a second 320GB am I able to build the RAID mirror with my current install or do I have to reinstall the OS, etc?

    I have a similar question

    I just setup two spinpoint F1 1TB drives in a software mirror config, and I wanted to know if one of the drives dies, can I just pop in another 1TB drive to rebuild the mirror without formating and reinstalling?

    No longer logging into MR
    Just install and mirror it.

    Yes, just replace the drive and have it rebuild the mirror.
