    We currently have 2 mirrored 9GB drives and would like to
    replace the drives with 2 36GB drives mirrored. The OS
    on the server is Windows 2000 server Sp3. We have 3
    additional unused drive bays on the server. Can we
    install the drives in the unused bays, create the array,
    then migrate all user and permission info the remove the
    old drives without having to go to the backup tape?

  2. Hello,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    You can first use NTbackup to backup whole system, and then install a new
    Windows 2000 on the 36GB drive then restore from backup. Create mirrored
    volume at last.

    In addition, you can also try the Ghost software to ghost the original
    system partition then restore on the new disk. If the new Windows boot
    normally, you can then create mirrored volume.

    Have a nice day!
