Hard Drive Upgrade on Server 2000

By diskless ·
I need to upgrade our HP e800 server, currently we have two 18.8 gig (mirror) hard drives, I purchased two new 37 gigs to replace them. I tried to just remove one old drive, insert one new drive, break the mirror and redo the mirror to the new drive. "C" (system only) "D" (which is data only) mirrored fine but left 20 gig unallocated. I would like to have 10 gigs on "C" and the remaining on "D" without having to reinstall Windows 2000 SBE and take the risk of data loss. What is the best why to go at this?

I have done this only once. It reqiured third party softwre called powerquest drive.

you will need to put the drives in as a non mirror set. create a copy to a smaller partition. then pull out the original and put the copy in the originals location. boot
put in the old drive create the mirror


this is not supported and should not be taken as support. always do testing before playing with product. hahahahaaa
