We have a Windows Server 2019 with only a File Server role.
The OS drive is a single HD and, with a hardware RAID controller, we want to add another HD and with it, change the OS drive to RAID1.
The machine is in production 9/5.
What's the best way to accomplish this?
One notion would be to image the OS HD, add the additional HD, create the RAID1 array, then bring the original image back.
Can I do this with VEEAM? That's already running - only on the boot HD.
What other tools are favored?
One other notion would be to image the OS HD.
Then, "convert [it] to RAID capable" which is an available option.
Then, see if it will boot at that point.
(I don't know if this is deemed RAID1 with one disk or RAID0)
Then, if successful so far, add the new HD.
Then, add the new HD in a RAID1 array with the OS HD now RAID- capable.
