221 Raid Expansion

I have three 9.1GB drives on my 221 controller. I know it won't support expansion. I want to add another 9.1 drive to the array. I'm thinking of making a complete backup (It's may Exchange Server), blowing it away and recreating the array with four drives, then restore the data. Is there any other option?

Re: 221 Raid Expansion

Unfortunately not. With your present controller, your plan is the only option. If you can find a Smart 2DH controller of equal or higher firmware revision, the drives can be moved to that controller and then array expansion will be an option.
