ML370 - Delete one of 2 logical drives in Array


I had 5 scsi 72 gb drives in an array on raid 5. Running low on space I added an additional 1x72gb scsi drive and expanded the array. I also somehow created a second Logical drive in the process within the ACU.

What I wanted to do was add space to my C drive and Data (E) drive using Acronis Disk Director which has worked fine for me previously.

However I realise now I shouldn't have created the second logical drive and now want to delete this leaving all data intact on the origional logical drive.

The option in the ACU allows me to delete the last created logical drive which is my 72gb. However I obviously am nervous it might blow away the other logical drive too. Is it safe to delete the last created logical drive as I made it a raid 5 so presumably it has parity across some of the other disks ?

Thanks for you're help.
grrr
