Here is the setup:
Server = HP Proliant 350 G6 + SBS 2011
RAID 1 = 2 x 300GB
Drive is split into 2 logical drives: C: & D:
C: for OS,
D: for files & Exchange database + SQL database
Both C: & D: are running out of space
Backup Exec 2012 in use: Full daily backup to tape.
Proposed solution: Add a 2nd RAID (probably 4x146GB in RAID 10) & migrate the whole D: to the new drive; delete the old D: partition, expand the C: partition to use the freed space on the original RAID
Question: How do I go about "migrating" the D: drive from one RAID to another, keeping in mind that Exchange & SQL are in use?
- Should I use Backup Exec, and what would be the steps?
- Should I use a 3rd party tool like CloneZilla
- I also have a legal copy of Acronis Disk Director Server 10.0. Is this a better tool?
