I have a Dell PowerEdge T110 II
I currently have 2 x 1 TB SATA HDD's in a raid 1 mirror via the PERC H200 Controller
I need to replace these HDD's with 2 x 2 TB SATA SSD's

Can I simply go ahead and remote one of the 1TB HDD's and replace with one 2TB SSD to basically add as new spare in the raid array? Then once process completed remove the other 1TB HDD and replace with 2nd 2TB SSD? I have seen this suggestion on some forums but also with advise against this so not sure which way to go about this? Or should I rather somehow just clone the drives? If you could please share the recommended method and step by step please
