I'm running a single 750GB WD Green hard drive. I'm going to a RAID 1
setup onto 2 750GB WD RE3 HDDs'.

I need to clone or ghost to one of the new hard drives. Can I just do a
show hidden files, un-hide protected operating system files and do a
drag and drop onto the new drive?

It would be a shame to have to buy a program for a one time deal.
