Replace RAID 0 drives with larger drives Windows XP Pro

By albert.lucero ·
I've backed up my data on the RAID drives so nothings going to get lost. Can I just replace the 2 drives with larger SATA drives? Or do they need to have some special formatting?

Intel Desktop Board D875PBZ Windows XP RAID in BIOS.

You just need two big sata drives and then do a clone/copy..

Over the new drives in question. You might need this to do it properly

It still needs to be installed as the System is loaded.

So you basically have 2 options you can clone one drive shut sown remove all the drives and fit the new ones and then repair the RAID with the second Drive fitted. Or if there are existing problems on the system at the moment do a clean new install onto the new drives. Then restore the data from the Backup.

As this is only XP there is no overriding concerns either way.
