Upgrading NOS hardware mirroring

If you have two 18G mirrored drives (for the NOS)that are using harware RAID, can you at some later time upgrade these drives to a larger capacity without losing your data? The NOS would be Windows 2000.

Thanks for any information that you might have.

Re: Upgrading NOS hardware mirroring

1- You can buy two disks more, do RAID1 with them and extend capacity from disk manager.
2- You can buy two bigger disks, backup all your data, change them for your actual disks, do RAID 1 and recover from backup.
