Increase storage on windows 2008 server running Exchange 2010

Last Modified: 2016-10-27
I am going to increase the storage on two servers. The first is simple. The C drive is on one array that I am not touching. The D drive is on a different array and simply stores data. I am going to back up everything then break the array that the D drive is on, install new drives, recreate the array and the D drive and restore data.

The second server is where I have a question. Same scenario except Microsoft Exchange 2010 is installed on the D drive. Can I still just backup the D drive then restore to the new larger array? My logic is the Registry is still on the C drive and doesn't that tell the operating system where everything is? Or am I completely wrong and if I did this I would have to re-install exchange?
