RAID Size Change

By mtveness ·
I recently lost an HD and RAID controller(Promise 2037 on my Asus MB. It was setup as a RAID1. I need to replace some hardware, but how I do it is the question. If I get another 250gig HD and a Fasttrak controller I should be back where I left off. But I could use more space(transfering family vids to DVD). Here's my question. If I connect 320gig HD and recreate the RAID1 and then replace the 250 with another 320 will the OS see a 250 or a 320?
Thank You

250, but

by Absolutely In reply to RAID Size Change

once you replace the working 250 with a second 320, you can plug that 250 into a spare IDE or SATA port in your computer, or worst case buy an external caddy for it. Then you can transfer all the data from your RAID array to the 250, delete the RAID array, recreate it at full size, transfer all your data to the new larger RAID array, and tell us if it was worth the hassle!

"tell us if it was worth the hassle!"

Maybe it will be easier to start from scratch...
Thanks for the thought.
