Adding Hard drives in live server enviorment without losing data.

I have an HP Proliant 360 G5 server running Windows server 2008 standard, I want to upgrade to  Windows server 2008 R2 and I do not have enough memory.  I have bought 2 new 32GB hard drives for the upgrade.  I would like to know if there is a way to add them to my array WITHOUT losing the Applications and data that are already in place.  Any helpful tip would be greatly apprciated.

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

Depending on the controller installed, and the presense of a functioning battery it is possible to extend the RAID array using the ACU.

 

Which Controller is installed in the server?

 

Cheers
