I have a server with four 300G drives grouped with raid5.  There are two partitions on the drive, C and E.  I want to image these with ghost and restore them to 2 pairs of raid1 drives that are 600Gig.  How do I restore to two different drives and make the partiotions larger?

I tried a simple disk to disk image and restored it to the new drives.  The new drives are two pairs of disks, each pair is raid1.  After the restore I had four drives (C, D, E, F).  and the partitions are the old size.  Its like the raid1 config was overwritten.  The server is a Dell and the raid1 config looks right.  when I boot it says there are two virtual disks recognized.  I dont understand why after the restore I see 4 drives...

any help is appreciated.
