Adding Space to a Windows 2000 Server

By Working IT ·
I am running a Win2000 Server with 2 18G (~17,000 MB) mirrored hard drives.

The server see it as one 18G logical drive under an Array.

This logical drive was partitioned into 2. One with 5000MB used for the OS. One is 12000MB used for MS Exchange (about 5 GB) and File servers (about 6 GB). And as you can imagine, I am running out of spaces.

Recently, I bought another 2 18G hard drive and installed them into the Server. But before doing any configuration with these 2 new physical drives, I would like to ask your advices and suggestions.

Should I put these 2 new drives into the same logical drive that I have right now and extend the space for the current 2 partition?
Or I should create a new logical drive with the new one under the same Array and create a new partition?
Or I should create an new array with a new logical drive with a new partition?

What is your recommandations?
