I have a Dell 1900 that has SBS2011 with the PERC 5/I in a RAID 1 with hot spare. The HD's are 74G each. The free space is 8G and need help in a solution to fix the space problem.
What I'm thinking about doing is to add another drive to the server and boot to an external HD (server 2008 R2) that has the PERC 5/I drivers. Image the existing installation to the added HD, reconfigure the RAID 1 to RAID 5, then reimage back to the PERC 5/I RAID.
This solution should give me 150G of space without any costs incurred. Any thoughts?
