Hi Experts,

In Windows 2003 server I mirrored a 80GB drive to a 160GB drive, so on the 160GB I have 80GB with the mirror and 80GB raw. I would like to replace the 80GB drive with another 160GB and mirror it.

Will my new mirror be only 80GB of data and 80GB raw or will it be a full 160GB mirror?
I hope this make sense.

Thanks,
james~

Back up your data first, put in the new 160 & you can configure how you want.  If you want to try to mirror without backing up the data first, your gonna run in to issues...
