Adding a second NAS200 to a network

    I've been using a RAID 0 NAS200 quite happily for a few years now with no problems but recently I had to replace both drives as they were getting near their capacity. I bought a couple of 1TB drives and am still using them. However, I found that there was some data I needed on the original pair of drives. "Simple" I thought - all I need to do is buy another NAS200, pop the original drives into it and I should be able to access the data. However, when I log onto the new NAS200 with my original drives fitted, it says it's configured as one big drive instead of RAID 0 and the only option it gives is to reset it which it warns will delete all the data on my drives!
    PLEASE someone - there must be a way to get to the data on a perfectly good pair of drives taken from another NAS200. How can this not work? I haven't run the setup wizard - only logged into the new NAS200 as admin to examine the drive status. As far as I can tell, the supplied setup wizard will destroy my data. What can I do? I thought it should be much more straightforward. Ideas anyone? :confused:
