Image existing server
Install new drives
Create RAID 5 (Thus destroying existing data)
Restore the Image to new disks, enlarging the partition size (Most image
software do this automatically)
Happy with the bigger redundant disks
I have done this many a time when increasing the drive sizes using
Powerquest V2i, or Ghost 2003 (Which can Image the disk to Tape if required)
