  1. Since you already have a RAID1 array, i assume you want an additional array? Like your current RAID1 is drive C: and you want a second array that becomes D: ?

    What's your question exactly, since i fail to see a problem definition.
  2. Hi,

    Thanks, for your reply.

    Yes, I have a RAID1 array of SATA 160GB HDD x 2. Now i am short of space on C: drive, I want add one more array of SATA 500GB HDD x 2. Is it possible to add one more array without loosing the data or reinstallation of Win2k3 OS?

  3. Sure just add a second RAID-array and it'll be called D: and co-exist independently from the C: drive (which is your current RAID1).
