Have an LSI MEGA RAID SAS 8308ELP Raid Controller with MegaRaid Storage Manager v. 2.30.00 on a Windows Storager Server 2003 Service Pack 2 Gateway Server. I am wanting to add one (already 4) SATA hard drive to a Raid 5 Array and keeping the same raid configuration on one enclosure. I also want to add 3 more SAS drives to another enclosure with 2 existing hard drives and change the Raid configuration to a Raid 6. I am unable to back all of the data from the all of the physical drives.
Question. Is there a good chance that reconstructing the virutal drives going to wipe out my data on the existing drives?
