Change Strip size

I have DL 380 G4 Server with raid controller running windows 2000 server.There is only one HD 340gb. Now i added 2nd HD of the same size. I want to mirror that drive without losing data. Is it possible to change strip size from 0 to 1? ANY Utility available.

Re: Change Strip size

Hi, you can use software mirror with W2000, change hdd from basic to dynamic, then create mirror with any partition.
IMPORTANT! you need to have a fresh BACKUP of all your data. In theory data cant loose with this hdd conversion (basic to dynamic).
Read carefully both documents:
