Re: How to add additional hard drive in a mirror without losing data?

Hi,

It is possible in MOST of the servers/RAID controllers.

select the disk with DATA ==> then select the new disk ==> then make mirror ( in this data is mirrorred and NOT LOST )

however you pls check the doc of the specific RAID controller that you use and do take a backup of data before starting this operation.

With Regards,

Siva.

Hi,
It is possible on almost all RAID controllers.

Remember to take a full backup of your array as a precaustion.
