Last Modified: 2017-12-13
Hi,

I am basically trying to increase The Local disk C of our HP Proliant Dl380 server, OS: Windows Server 2008 R2. currently, we have only 20 GB left of 100GB. we have 500 GB in LOcal disk D which also is 80% full. So we decided to add 2 more hard disks.

Currently, we have 3 300 GB SAS Hard disk configured in RAID 5. I have already bought 2 more of 300 GB.


How should I proceed?

should I create another array and move the local disk D items to the newly created partitions and then delete Local D and extend the LOCAL C?
if I do this will there be any Data LOSS??? is it compatible in HP P410i??

Please tell me know if there is any other way.
