Proliant SMART2P Array Expansion

I have a Proliant 2500 with a SMART-2P RAID Controller. I have 5 4.3GB hard drives and I am desparately low on space. I have found 5 9.1GB drives I would like to put in place of the current 4.3Gb drives. Can I replace the 4.3Gb drives one at a time until I have 5 9.1GB drives and have additional space to create a new partition? The OS is Windows NT Server 4.0.

Re: Proliant SMART2P Array Expansion

Maybe you found the answer now, but anyway.
The ansver is simply yes. Then all drives are swapped. You can create new logical drives in the unused space.
