I currently have Intel 82801FR SATA RAID controller with 2x120g hdd, using RAID 1, and I want to upgrade it to 2x500g hdd. I purchased 2 WD 500 Caviar GP SATA drives and am not sure how to proceed. If I take out one of the 120's, and replace it with a 500 and all the array to rebuild, I'll only have 120 capacity, right? So will this process work?
Break the array by disconnecting the 120 on port 2. Replace with the 500. Use Norton Ghost 10 to do a drive copy of the existing 120 to the 500 using the full capacity. Next take out the 120, and moving the 500 up to port 1, adding the remaining 500 to port 2, and rebuilding the array that way? I do have a ghost image of the current 120 on a removable hdd, but don't see how to get that to work. Any advice?
