I have a Windows Server 2012 Essentials PC that I custom built for a client. Currently it has 1 500 GB Samsung SSD. I want to add a 2nd then do RAID0 Mirroring for redundancy in case a SSD crashes. Currently the motherboard I have is a ASRock X99 WS. 

 

https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X99%20WS-E10G/

 

Is there a way to add a 2nd SSD for redundancy WITHOUT rebuilding the server? According to specs it can handle: 

 

 

- 10 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s Connectors, support RAID (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 10 and Intel® Rapid Storage 13), NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug*
- 2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s Connectors by Marvell SE9172, support RAID (RAID 0 and RAID 1), NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug**
- 1 x SATA DOM Connector (shared with S_SATA3_2)
- 1 x SATA Express 10 Gb/s Connector (shared with SATA3_4 and SATA3_5)***
- 1 x eSATA Connector, supports NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug
- 1 x M.2_SSD (NGFF) Socket 3, supports M Key M.2 SATA3 6.0 Gb/s module and M.2 PCI Express module up to Gen2 x4 (20 Gb/s)****
 

*S_SATA3_2 is shared with the SATA DOM; S_SATA3_3 is shared with the eSATA. RAID is supported on SATA3_0 ~ SATA3_5 ports only.

**Marvell SE9172 RAID is supported with Windows® OS only.

***Support to be announced.

****If M2_1 is occupied by a SATA-type M.2 device, S_SATA3_0 will be disabled.
If you install a M.2 PCI Express module and the SATA_EXP0 is in use, the M2_1 will downgrade to x2 mode.
