Can I replace a TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5 for supported hot swappable drives
Posted on 2016-08-01
Company was sold a server without any information or documentation. I found out that when this server was bought from lenovo it was bought without hard drives installed. The consultant from whom this company bought this computer did an after market install with one TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5 . According to what I have read about this server ThinkServer by Lenovo TS440 it supports hot swappable drives. I believe it may also have a raid controller, but not sure. My question copy is can i copy the information from the current drive to a supported hot swappable drive? Also if I find that the controller does support raid, should I go ahead and purchase the necessary drives to support RAid 5?
