Adaptec SATA Raid Advice?
Posted on 2013-06-05
I have a question regarding Adaptec raid controllers.
I plan on getting a simpler Adaptec SATA RAID controller and building
a Raid 1 mirror with two drives.
Is it likely that latter on I could upgrade the adaptec to a better controller
and simply plug the new one in and it could read all the disks and retain the data?
Or will I have to start again?
Additionally assuming I have a RAID 1 mirror with two drives can I add drives two drives to it and turn it into a RAID 10 without having to loose the data ? Or would I need to start again.
When I say loose the data - I mean destroying the RAID set and having to reformat the drives with the Adaptec utility software.
The old raid card would be a an Adaptec RAID 3405
