Replacing drives in RAID 1
Posted on 2003-12-09
I have an Adaptec SCSI RAID controller with two Seagate 9.11 GB drives mirrored as RAID 1. I want to replace both of these drives with larger capacity. I have two partitions C: for Win2K and D: for data.
Can I install one new drive as a spare and change it to be the mirror, then remove the original mirror, then make the new drive the primary, and then install the second new drive as the mirror?
Or is there a better way to replace the drives and preserve all OS and data?
