I have a HP Proliant DL380 G5 with two HDDs in RAID 0 (Stripe)(72GB+72GB). It has been running Windows Server for quite a while now and has 30GB of occupied space on a stripted volume.
I've now purchase two 72GB HDDs more (same as the one's already installed in the server). I'd like to make that system more safe by introducing HDD mirroring of the existing striped disk.
- Is it possible to create a RAID 1 (mirror) on a disk that has already been in use?
- Is it possible to mirror a striped disk pair?
Thanks in advance.
