Drive Array

I have a drive array on this server is needs more disk space. The array is full of 9.1 GB drives and all the slots are full. Is there anyway to replace the drives with higher capacity drives without replacing them and restoring from backup? Thanks.

Re: Drive Array

Yes, this is possible but it will be time consuming. Shut down the server and replace one of the hard drives. Boot up and it will start to rebuild the new hard drive automatically. Wait until it is rebuilt and then shut down and replace another. You will have to do this until all hard drives have been rebuilt. After all this please run the array configuration utility and from there you will see free space and then you can create another logical drive or extend an existing.
