Raid rebuilding

By bruce.medelpad ·
I am upgrading my raid 1 system that presently has two 60 GB HD . I am upgrading to two 320GB HD and have already replaced one of them. My problem is that the system recognizes the new HD, but only at 60 GB not 320. When I go to put in the next new 320 GB HD will I only have 60 GB or will it recognize the larger HD's?I do not want to lose the data from the old HD.

Ah, you forgot the rule about RAID 1 Arrays

by CG IT In reply to Raid rebuilding

only use the same size [or matched] drives.

This is because the RAID array is as big as the smallest drive in the array.

I've never really actually tried to restore from backup one RAID 1 array to another RAID 1 array where the arrays were different sizes.

probably get an NTLDR error.
