    You can insert the disk and create a volume on it. That doesn't touch the current disk.

    the data of the first hard disk remain even if I wanted to activate RAID 1?

    If your current volume is capable to be extended to a 2 disk raid 1 array, the data will remain. But when you have to create a new volume to do so, the data will be lost.

    BTW, if your data is valuable, you should have a backup. A disk is a fragile, mechanical device, and it *will die* some day.

    You can select your current volume, and then click edit, it should allow you to extend the BASIC volume to the RAID1 with another disk.
