I have a dell poweredge 2900 with 2 hot swap hard drives raid 1 for my c drive and 3 raid 5 drives for my d drive.  I am running SBS2008 and SQL server 2008 with most of my data on my d drive.  I am running out of space on my c drive and was wondering if I removed both my c drives and installed larger drives and reinstalled the operating system:  If I didn't have enough time to finish the new drives could I reinsert the original drives and would the computer recognize them with no change?  If so I could later continue my new setup and would the new c drives recognize the d drives?  Also, I have perc6i, SAS RAID controller
